It should be a law:
No cutting of trees, please.
No desecration of life-green foliage and climbing limb.
No mauling of shade-makers and wind-shakers.
No abuse of fruit-bearers and dream-catchers.
There should be a law:
No chopping and chipping.
No axing of sap-runners and dirt-catchers.
A hider of seekers,
Guardian, sentinel, standing at attention.
I am not a tree hugger per se, but there is a certain sadness to see
oxygen-givers and long-livers
hacked down for who knows what.
Plant a tree, not a parking lot!
(Upon the “murder” of two beautiful trees!)
