leaves wings and other such things

guardian of the woods

the owl is the guardian of the woods

Trees are the kindest things I know,
They do no harm,
they simply grow
And spread a shade
for sleepy cows,
And gather birds among their boughs.
They give us fruit in leaves above,
And wood to make our houses of,
And leaves to burn on Hallowe’en,
And in the Spring
new buds of green.
They are the first when day’s begun
To touch the beams of morning sun.
They are the last to hold the light
When evening changes
into night,
And when a moon floats on the sky
They hum a drowsy lullaby
Of sleepy children
long ago . . .
Trees are the kindest things I know.
—Harry Behn
