And, of course, a poem for the trees
I considered referring everyone to Dr. Seuss' _The Lorax_, in fact, I think I'll still do that. Here's the basic information, and I suggest you buy a used copy at your local independent bookstore, or from Amazon, to save some trees.
Here's a Tree Poem offering in honor of Earth Day. It's "The Presence of Trees" by Michael S. Glaser.
I have always felt the living presence
the forest that calls to me as deeply
as I breathe,
as though the woods were marrow of my bone
I myself were a tree, a breathing, reaching
arc of the larger canopy
beside a brook bubbling to foam
like the one
deep in these woods,
that whispers home
