Blessed Are The Trees
Blessed Are The Trees.
God made trees,
They house his small creatures and build him a church.
or a prickly old pine,
some trees can grow fruit, like small clementines.
or even a sloth, can find a safe home in a high tree loft.
And so can birds that sometimes eat bugs,
or even a slug.
Your blocks, your table, and even your chair,
all came from a tree that was planted somewhere.
A branch to climb on,
a nice place to rest,
a tree can hide a robin's nest.
So plant a young tree, hug an old tree, and pray in its shade.
Just thank God for that tree and all the trees that he made.
