Trees, - Poem by James McLain

1) ..Every time... I take a breath.
2) ..I think about... the trees.

3) ..Knowing that....deep down inside.
4) ..Each breath you take...no longer can I clean.

5) ..Is it True...your love I sought.
6) ..When on my skin... you carve your heart.

7) ..When here...upon my limbs birds nest.
8) ..While growing roots...each tree..is freed.

9) ..If leaves are words...one poem makes.
10) ..And making none...you strip my branch.

11) ..Where then will you..hang your child...a swing.
12) ..Looking up..why do I see..heaven without trees.
