Trees

Giants, towering, stretching
Reaching for the sky.
Clothed in green finery.
In their gathering, there are no lies.
And we humans take them
For granted, for shade, for lumber,
for building, for burning.
Survivors stand their ground.
They persist in giving us oxygen
Beyond our level of care.
Trees.
They must love us more than we.
