Naila Rais

Trees

Don't cut me, don't cut me
I give you all the things
What bad have I done to you
Don't cut me, don't cut me.

I give you shade
I give you food
I give beauty
And the life.

I'm nature's friend
Without me it's impure
I keep my friend always pure
Don't cut me off I cry, don't cut me off I cry.

I'm great friend of yours
This is the cry of your friend
The friend begs to you
Save me, don't cut me off, I'm your friend tree.

    Wonderful metaphor, trees are our benefactors and friends and yet we cut them down, to make room for our needless things.

    preserve the natural wealth
    it is good for the health of mankind
    you shall invite diseases o unknown kinds
    and find in an awkward position

    Yes, trees are an integral part of nature and humanity which will always remain indebted to all trees, flora and foliage in jungles or otherwise. Thanks dear poet.

    A brilliant piece deserving of POD, I must confess this is timely and apt. Coming at a time the world has become careless and insensitive about our environment and deforestation. The importance of trees and natural vegetation for the continued existence of humanity cannot be emphasised. Thanks Naila, you nailed it here. Congratulations once again on being voted POD.
