THE GEM 26 NOV 2018 : “I LIKE TREES BECAUSE THEY SEEM MORE RESIGNED TO THE WAY THEY HAVE TO LIVE THAN OTHER THINGS DO.” — WILLA CATHER FROM O PIONEERS!

Oh don’t bring down

The ancient pine,

The breath of life

That’s yours and mine.

Don’t tear it out

saw it down

gouge it, chop it,

let it drown.

Don’t fell the tree

that’s stood so long.

Leave bird and bush

Where they belong.

Leave the forest,

Green gold place,

the glow of hope

on this earth’s

old face.
