Eucalyptus Tree - Poem by Julie King

Laying beneath your canopy admiring your silvery leaves
Before a wash of sky, I rest with enraptured ease

Your foliage so appeasing in shades of blue and green
Diffusing your balmy oils thus palliative and serene

Supplying me with oxygen, guarding my precious wealth
Reducing air's pollution - essential to human health

You shed your outer ribbons of bark in summer each year
Revealing a radiant surface so colourful, smooth and sheer

Fundamentally affording Koalas substantial, nourishing feed
Generously protecting wildlife, providing homes and seed

Native flowers oozing nectar, attract insects such as bees
Birds peck at gumnut pits and devour them easy as peas

So grounded and assured as your roots do fondly creep
Embracing Mother Earth connected, strong and deep
