“Trees” by Nandika Narang

Palm, Redwood, Oak, Pine,

Trees give us so much,

Apples, oranges, apricots and lime,

Destroying them is a crime.

The flow of green,

Always a different scene,

Forests feel like a beautiful dream.

So peaceful yet so filled,

Trees are many homes,

Trees are birds’ protected domes,

Squirrels get oak from the trees,

Burrows get protected by the trees,

Honeycombs on trees are homes of the bees.

The trees make the animals happy,

They are free.

But, this won’t be,

If we cut them down in thousands

Trees are not merely timber,

Not merely wood,

Not merely paper.

Trees are resources,

They are homes.

They are peace.

They are life.
