You stand there bare,
exposed for all to see,
Arms outstretched swaying on airstreams.

Feet firmly rooted you withstand being polluted.

You are beauty of the most natural,
slender and tall

Hold your own through all the season,
Year after year,
quietly observing
new life starting,
sad departings.

You are a Blanket,
food for those that need it

A beauty in wonder

Then man kind came about,
starts to wipe you out.

taking you down to the ground

Up rooted,
Stripped of beauty,
become what man kind decides...

No tree's...
No air...
No breath...
