Requiem For The Trees - Poem by Suzanne Ouimet

We watched in goulish fascination
As our mighty friends were felled
One by one, their majestry erased
As they came crashing to the ground.
We grieve

They truly were our friends, providing
Shelter from the icy blasts of winter
Coolly filtering the searing rays
Of summer's sun.
We grieve

We'd found a perfect haven in their woods
From all the noise.

What price this barefaced beauty?

    It is so true...if they arn't cut down, then they are burned...with all the forrest fires raging in California right now...there won't be any left.
