I Love The Names Of Trees


I love the names of trees
Lilac apple peach pear poplar
Juniper spruce fir pine maple
Redwood oak linden birch
Cypress date –palm dream
Each name a picture a suggestion a scent
And many memories
I love the names of trees
And the calm they make for my mind
And the feeling they give
That Beauty is in the very saying and seeing of things
I love the names of trees,
The names of flowers also
And so much Beauty there is in the world
And so much color and green
I love the names of trees.

It is with great delight that I have read this poem and enjoyed the music coming out of each one of the trees recalled by you by name. It is indeed a treat to the senses. The beauty, colour, smell and lots of memories attached with trees have enriched our lives. Please accept my sincere thanks, Shalom.
