“I have grown taller from walking with trees.” Karle Wilson Baker

“We have nothing to fear and a great deal to learn from trees, that vigorous tribe and pacific tribe which without stint produces strengthening essences for us, soothing balms, and in whose gracious company we spend so many cool, silent and intimate hours.”
Marcel Proust, Pleasures and Regrets 1896

“All it has experienced, tasted, suffered:
The course of years, generations of animals,
Oppression, recovery, friendship of sun and – Wind
Will pour forth each day in a song
Of rustling foliage, in the friendly
Gesture of its gently swaying crown,
In the delicate sweet scent of resinous
Sap moistening the sleep-glued buds,
And the eternal game of lights and shadows it plays with itself, content.”

Herman Hesse 1877 – 1962

Plants and Trees
Plants and trees are very cool, there are lots at my school.
Hebes are quite nice, ask my Pop about the price.
I like to help my Nan and Pop until I really have to stop.
My poem is quite nice, I think
Inspiring, my cherry tree turns pink.
My poem is coming to a close
Wait, I heard Pop turn on the hose !!
Grace 8 years

Kind regards
