A very early poem about my love of trees
First Love
When I was just a girl I fell
Totally, irrevocably, and forever I fell
In love with trees
Trees in all seasons
Trees for all reasons
Strong, majestic and tall
Even when they are just small
I fall, in love with trees
With beautiful blossom or autumnal hues
I fall in love - in love with trees
In all their glory I choose
Their pale coloured trunks of red or brown
Their branches spreading out or down
I fall - in love with trees
Poets adore them, singers sing of them
And I? I love them
In forests among their peers
Or alone standing tall
I love them
Trees bringing joy, trees bringing tears
I love them all above the rest
Gently cradling the smallest of nests
Home for many a creature small
There is nothing so good at hiding them all
So, love them I will until
The trees and I, are at rest by Coral Boucher
