Happy Arbor Day

Today is Arbor Day.  The day we honor the Earth by planting a tree.  A tree that which will grow and shade your home.  A fruit tree will provide you nourishment.  A shade tree will lower the heat in the summer by 20 degrees.  A tree that provides homes to birds and squirrels.

Trees --- Joyce Kilmer

I Think that I shall never see   
A poem lovely as a tree.   

A tree that looks at God all day,   
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;   

A tree that may in summer wear   
A nest of robins in her hair;   

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;   
Who intimately lives with rain.   

Poems are made by fools like me,   
But only God can make a tree.

I know this artist, Cat Stevens is very controversial.  But this song was written before his conversion to Islam and is a very beautiful one.  Enjoy it.
