THE GEM 29 AUGUST 2016 : “I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.” — Willa Cather from O Pioneers! | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

RAINFOREST BY LIBBY HATHORNOh don’t bring downThe ancient pine,The breath of lifeThat’s yours and mine. Don’t tear it outsaw it downgouge it, chop it,let it drown. Don’t fell the treethat’s stood so long.Leave bird and bushWhere they belong. Leave the forest,Green gold place,the glow of hopeon this earth’sold face.
