die Bäume, the trees, les arbres, τα δέντρα

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make  a tree.

( Joyce Kilmer 1913 : Trees)

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the Maples want more sunlight
And the Oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
(And they’re quite convinced they’re right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can’t help their feelings
If they like the way they’re made
And they wonder why the maples
Can’t be happy in their shade?

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream ‘Oppression!’
And the oaks, just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
‘The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light’
Now there’s no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet,
And saw

(Rush : the trees)

I love trees. Lately I read a saying: The best time for planting a tree was 20 years ago. The second best is now. I wish I had a garden.

We are one, said one branch to the other…
Mona Dee photography  trees
Different people, different lifes, different hopes…

If you don´t like how things are, change it, you are not a tree.
And if the storm is too heavy, don´t forget: storm make trees deeper roots.

I will never forget some places, some trees, some people…
