Save the Trees

Updated on November 28, 2016

Written for Poetry Month

Every time a tree is cut down, a tragedy occurs.

We should stop cutting down trees and save Planet Earth for our future generations.

At the crack of dawn,

A loud thunderous sound,

The sound of saw and axe,

Echoing around,

A loud thunderous sound.

A crash, a fall,

A heavy thud on the ground,

A scar left behind,

On Planet Earth,

A tragedy has occurred,

A tree is cleared.


If trees could talk

I feel

I feel,

I hear,

I shiver in fear,

Every time I hear,

The death knell,

Ringing out loud,

For me and my friends,

The threatening sounds,

Of saws, axes and chains,

Cutting, ripping, uprooting,

Roots of life,

Veins and arteries,


The very sustenance,

Of life on earth,

Into which I breathe,


Day after day,

Today I stand in fear,

Of hearing my own death knell,


Slowly but surely,

I will be felled,

Only you


Save me
