Poetry Pleases: Trees

Brian Lockett brings poetic advice on the best thing that can be done with trees.

What can you do with trees ?

You can chop them down and burn them
Or make them into sheds.
You can buy them young as saplings
To shade your flower beds.

You can make them into paper
To tell the world the news;
You can sell them to a builder
To make more space for mews.

You can wait for them to flower
And later, if you’re wise,
To bear the nuts, the pears, the plums
That vegetarians prize.

But best of all, I tell you,
For all your children’s sake,
You ought to leave the trees alone
And let them hibernate.
