Our Environment

In the clique of trees the sawyer lurked
Assessing their readiness to be felled
Together they had survived strong winds
In their flexible, skinny sapling days
Storms and hail stones that left them bare
Together they have grown tall and sturdy
Roots grounded fast into Mother Earth
Their anchor, their nurturer and nourishment
Together they have waved their beautiful colours
Adorned the skyline with their calm
And left a peaceful energy of shade to sit beneath
These majestic giants of great spirit
Destined to become wasted paper or furnishing
Until we learn to use friendly replacements
Until we learn to love our environment
We shall waste so very many years
