Many a tree; unnoticed passed by.....
Fell to this earth giving shelter to many
How oft it must in toil of growth sigh
Did man think twice to cut any?
Forest of them burn away.....
The earth misses it in a large way
If it had a way to speak or have a say
Would it have let you cut it ;any way?
Men of great potential, great valor
Must also the bed of death face...
Then why not add as much color
As possible to life keeping pace?
It is hardship he weathered brave
That makes him stand apart
Makes human my heart; crave
His friendship girdle ; to be a part....
Tall he stood iconic
towering in life
Massive and stoic
