I never, ever thought I’d see, A poem about trees written by me.
But when a tree challenge gets thrown down, It awakens the Poet Laureate of MY Town.
I used to give trees names unkind, “View-blockers” quickly comes to mind.
Really though, I love trees from far and wide, ‘Cuz they recycle my carbon dioxide.
They turn it into oxygenated air, And I can breath it anywhere.
I like trees for many reasons, Their leaves change in all the seasons.
They provide housing for squirrels and birds, Which climb on branches to drop their turds.
Trees grow apples, oranges and other fruits, They also provide sweet maple syrup juice. (Does my poem sound like Dr. Seuss)
Trees are awesome, trees are fun, Trees make life better for everyone.
Each of us views trees however we like, I think I’ll go see some while riding my bike.
Thanks for coming along on my tree-viewing ride, And for putting up with my awesome poetic side.
