Poem of Trees


With a love of hiking & the great outdoors, I was inspired by the beautiful words of a friend’s writing, “Trees Are The Poem The Earth Wrote To Heaven“, to create this poem:

Of roots and trunks and branches, too
And don’t forget each leaf
With bark that’s better than a bite
More sun is warm relief

Let’s not discount the rain
It’s most important, too
Each season brings real change
In sum, that’s how I grew

The sky above has quite a view
With colors close to ground
Each forest has so many trees
Go hike, and look around
