Trees On A Slope By A River

A bicycle path along the river wends beside the edge of trees Planted there to keep the soil from sliding down in nth degrees The sassafras is from the middle part of North America Right by it sits the Trembling Aspen fluffy seed that fly then fall It's done with planning in an office so people can walk safe and free So they can stroll beside the river and never think of plant disease Because if one plant gets a sickness all the others of it's kind will bend under the natural illness and denude the landscape when they die
