An ode to trees.........................

The View From the Ledge offers a prayer for the trees.  Having just recently cleaned up some magnificent old oak trees from the truly significant damage wrought by our summer wind storm, it struck a chord.  Jeff also pointed to some "tree poems", and having just shoveled the driveway amid snow-draped evergreens, this one resonated:

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance......
