Grow More Trees


Seeds sown
Many a year ago're
Tall grown
Trees
In the forest
Reaching
Sky high.

They breathe in
What we let out
Giving out
What we breathe in.

Trees capture
Clouds
Bring us rain
They render us
Immense
Service.

Let's sow
Seeds
Year after year
For every tree cut
This year
Let two trees
Reach its stage
A year after.

Let trees live
Let trees grow
World without
Trees
Barren, uninteresting
And unpleasant
An ever-widening
Dessert
Hope we can
Avoid this.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
