Trees give breath
to those who live
in mountains high
and valleys low.
To creatures wild and tame –
the secretive cougar,
the colourful beetle,
destructive human beings.
Our precious tapestries of life
are bound together by trees.
Trees keep us alive;
why extinguish them?
Written by Emmah (9 & older Category) after a walk to 
visit the trees and pond of Jericho Beach, Vancouver
