Lament Of The Forest

Poem By MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

LAMENT OF THE FOREST
Melvin Banggollay


F- orest are nature’s precious gift
We should protect and uplift
For we need them to be safe
Against global warming’s face.

O- ur forest now needs relief
From unlawful use or mischief
Of those who rape her breast
To exploit wealth for success.

R- efrain from cutting down trees
Without replanting to reforest
For if nature will seek for justice
No one can escape her risk.

E- very wildlife will surely weep
If there homes will all be sweep
And every rivers or streams
Will dry up end into thin steam.

S- top burning the remaining forest
For the next kin to find redress
And for our young children to see
God’s great creations with glee.

T- ake care of our nature’s beauty
If we want protection and safety
From wrath of nature’s great fury
Like erosion and floods so deadly.
