What Wood, Would Be.
The trees against the skyline
Are as beggars in the wind
To bend before the will of man
As though twer them that sinned
But they gave to us with all intent
The things that we all need
The gift to live and prosper
Yet we destroy it with our greed
We slash and burn to scorch the earth
Is nothing sacred anymore
To devastate a landscape
Its not with nature we're at war
They are a thing of beauty
With their hues of green and gold
But without them we cannot survive
And neither shall grow old.

Perfectly said I love nature, with out our trees nature is so bare and most of the beauty is lost.  If more people appreciate the beauty of our trees and their purpose they may think twice about ruining them and spend more time preserving nature.. Exceptional write here I love it!!!
