Joy Of Trees
What greater phenomenon and joy to eye and soul
Than trees with leaves swaying gently in the wind
World's lungs, creating oxygen, supporting life
Jungles, forests and woodlands, keeping us alive.
Mankind's Crown jewels, each tree so precious
Inheritance for our protection against global warming
Cutting down trees, burning trees making grazing land
Forest dwelling animals being made extinct.
Money and greed before sustaining the lungs of the world
Thousands of trees felled daily creating less oxygen
How the soul rejoices with beauty of trees
Shafts of sunlight from foliage making pools of light
Heart uplifted walking woodlands, seeing flowers
Nesting birds, squirrels, badgers, and elusive deer.
