Mother Trees

In the deep forest

There are trees

Named Mother

Younger trees

Grow from her body

Fed by her.

All in a row

Or in a circle they grow

Strong because of

The gifts she gave them

Would that our children

Grow as wise

And as tall.

Would that our leaves

Shelter all the children

From the storms

And the forest fires.

Mother love and care

Everywhere

All of us

We are all of one forest

One people

One family

Reaching for the sun.
