MY TREE IN THE WINTER ~ is stark and forlorn

Bare trunk and bare branches ~ her leaves have all gone

Freezing and breezing and covered in snow

Rejected ~ dejected and so full of woe !


MY TREE IN THE SPRING ~ a much happier creature

Bright green her leaves and blossom her feature

Song birds are nesting and singing all day 

In the roots and the branches ~ there are squirrels at play !


MY TREE IN THE SUMMER ~ majestic her sight

Her leaves photosynthetic ~ and they switch off at night

Shade to sit under ~ fruit and nuts to enjoy 

My Tree in the Summer ~ I climbed as a Boy !


MY TREE IN THE AUTUMN ~ She acts very strange

From just GREEN to a RAINBOW her leaves start to change

Red ~ Orange ~ Yellow ~ Green ~ Blue and Violet

And then they turn Brown and fall down to Earth ~ silent !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love to all BRIAN  XOX

  • Comment from author about the poem: We all love TREES and in the UK they are a classical feature of our Urban and Rural landscape. On a global scale trees are essential to maintain the ecological balance. They are an essential part of the Water Cycle and control the level of CARBON DIOXIDE (a Greenhouse Gas). They breath in CO2 and photosynthesise it into glucose and breath out oxygen ! Animals do the opposite and thus maintain equilibrium ! Deforestation for timber and urban development increases the atmospheric CO2 level and consequently Global Warming. Please protect and preserve your trees !

          I think this may be my favorite of your poems, Brian. The personification of the trees is really great and makes me sympathetic to what they go through, whether it be playful little creatures hanging from their limbs or losing on of their prettiest features. Really great job.
