My Town Friday Shoot-out / Trees
(please note that I have changed the video at the end of this post to add two posts that had been left out.)
Within our group there are so many talented, worthy of note, participants that each and every week it is a major quandary for me to choose just a few spotlight photos. If you are tired of hearing me say this, SORRY but I am not tired of saying it….. it adds to all our pleasure to take in these special posts each week. This week I thought I would start off with something different – THIS is what our topic really meant this week. Thank you Gordon.
A tiny acorn in the wild
Is, somewhat, like a little child.
Small children need our loving care,
But, for an acorn, help is rare.
It takes a planter, kind and wise,
To hear their silent fervent cries.
If we could like the planter be,
And take the time to save a tree,
Or help a child grow strong and tall,
They, both, would surely bless us all.
It takes a planter to invoke
The spirit of a mighty oak.
So, may we always do our part
To teach a child in mind and heart.
As planters, may we live to see
An endless oaken canopy.
A special tribute to all our trees
