A Poem on Trees

While walking past the trees,

My eyes curiously see,

Who had planted thee,

To give shelter to me,

And a thought occurs to me,

To plant a little tree,

For my great-grandkids to see.

I love taking pictures, while walking in the morning or evening. Here are some beautiful tree photographs, clicked by me, along with some Tree quotes.

To Conclude:

The trees represent life. Not only are they beautiful gifts of the Mother Nature, but also they are the lifeline to us, the human beings and many other creatures of the earth.

They are necessary for our survival, for shade, food, clean water and clean air.

The least we can do for our future generations is, not to cut the trees unnecessarily and plant more and more trees.
