Tracy, since the other thread was so long I closed it and opened this new one. (I hope you don't mind). Here is the link to the old thread and I am not unpinning it or anything.
He plants the friend of sun and sky;
He plants the flag of breezes free;
The shaft of beauty, towering high;
He plants a home to heaven anigh
For song and mother-croon of bird
In hushed and happy twilight heard -
The treble of heaven's harmony
These things he plants who plants a tree.
~ Henry Cuyler Bunner,
the Heart of the Tree
Here's a haiku I wrote in 6th grade~I still remember it after all these years:
An ancient oak tree
standing in a meadow sweet
scarred with signs of life
Great poetry girls! Always loved nature inspired poems and writings. Thanks for posting!!
Sue, how awesome that you wrote that in 6th grade; but what exactly is a haiku?
Tracy, thanks for giving me the okay. I decided to expand it from just poetry to quotes as well. Maybe proverbs and other stuff too. Whatever anyone wants to post...thus the etc. in the title.
- Psalms 1: 1-3
I can't speak for everyone else but I would share anything I post. However, the poems aren't written by me and most can be found on the internet. It's great you have a new tree site; however the link brings me to a Care2 page.
