The Tree - Poem by Delmar Pepper

Branches with their bark and leaves,
Are natures dressing for her trees
Trees, ever obedient to natures call
Continue their work in spite of all
I can't imagine life without a tree
If they were gone, so would some of me.

Look closely at the trees by you,
Whether large or small or maybe new.
Let's share a prayer that we may see
The gift God has given us in the tree.
Remember the tree in all its beauty,
Asks little, save a chance to do its duty.
