AnElephantCant hide his enjoyment
There are so many things make him pleased
Yo-yos and Pawpaws
Cuckoos and Crab Claws
But there are few things as wonderful as Trees
Some trees have quite spiky sharp needles
They are Evergreens also called Conifers
They keep their leaves on
No matter the season
There are Scotch Pines and Spruces and Firs
Other trees have broad flatter foliage
We describe these handsome dudes as Deciduous
At Autumn’s first cough
Leaves start to fall off
They await spring with a quiet air of wistfulness
Some are graceful and elegant like the Willow
But the Oak and the Chestnut are more sturdy
The Birch and the Beech
Have strong branches that reach
Way up high safe for the nest of a birdy
Trees have trunks and branches and twiggies
And roots that are twisty and curled
Their bark hides wee bugs and beasties
Who become woodpeckers’ feasties
And they provide great cover for a smart sneaky squirrel
But the best thing about trees is their magic
This is a process that is photosynthetic
They use carbon dioxide
Then oxygen they provide
For us to breathe this is quite synergetic
Love your deciduous/wistrulness rhyme.
Yeah, well, sometimes even AnElephant stumbles over a good one! Surprised to see you here, things must be dull, dull, dull!
Wonderful trees, and your poetry is so delightful. 🙂
Trees are cool. Glad you liked the rhymes. Thank you.
I think I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree
Is a thought I share.
When they are bare
They are like cathedrals
Guardians and angels
Working their magic
AnElephant’s poem is nearly
as lovely as a tree.
Merci, cherie, tu es toujours trop gentille.
Peut-être pas assez. 🙂
LOVE these pics. Clearly AnelephantCAN. 😀
He can point and press, and fortunately in this case the subject matter is relatively static! Thank you for your kind words.
lol – welcome. 🙂
Your poem is wonderful, a great and clever tribute to the wide variety of trees (which I adore), and the photographs are also a treat, excellent examples to go with your words, thank you! 🙂
