The Forest Lies Down - poem
Conservation of trees and forests
I got the urge to write this when I was thinking about science - or ecologists - talking about progress. They were cutting down forests and using the logs for 'whatever they use them for' and how they will hurt us and nature in doing so. They must think of something else to use instead of trees and logs because they will eventually cut down all of the forests.
Besides us running out of logs, many animals will be losing their homes. Other things are trees from the trees canopies and from these canopies also come shade. The leaves detoxify the air and help provide oxygen which cuts down on the smog, that is why we are planting trees along roadsides both in the country and in the city. They are also used to make paper, which may be one of the main reasons for their taking them down.

The Forest Lies Down
Testing 1, 2, 3, listen close to me
Are there birds in these trees?
This is a warning to all who live in this forest
They are coming to take the trees.
If you have a home in this forest, it is time to move,
You must find a home, in another place.
Before the earthquake comes and
Your home is destroyed.
Save the trees
Do you want to save the environment?
Here is a second poem I wrote about trees but the only difference, you could say, is that it was a challenge.
Summary: Poem challenge by Sunny Rivers
This poem was written for a challenge from Sunny Rivers.
Asleep in a Tree
It sits up high on a tree branch,
The beak is buried in the feathers.
The feet are tightly locked upon the branch,
Its head is hunched, its shoulders are high.
First you see that both eyes are shut,
Then you see one closed eye & one open eye.
If that is asleep it cannot be,
It cannot sleep while it can see.
What is it tell me whoo?
It is an owl that is whoo!
