“Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets, but humbler folk may circumvent this restriction if they know how. To plant a pine, for example, one need be neither god nor poet; one need only own a shovel.”
― Aldo Leopold
Did you hear zephyr talking to the trees
swirling all around, never touching ground?
As it whispered to the exquisite leaves
Wind marveled at their roots, being earthbound
Limbs answered the wind with words to astound
We are the givers of life here on earth
For without us, there would have been no birth
Of every creature who breathes your sweet air
So do you now see our value and worth
For without us the world hasn’t a prayer.
