Spiritual Redwoods

The Redwoods are special indeed
When trying to understand the trees
Massive in both girth and height
The gentle giants of the woods

When trying to understand the trees
They’re very spiritual in nature
The gentle giants of the woods
They totally captivate the mind

They’re very spiritual in nature
Massive in both girth and height
They totally captivate the mind
The Redwoods are special indeed  

For Matt's contest
