Change Agent Poet

Plants are a marvelous species—
With a compassion for other plants
They will let the plant grow
on them and won’t
Go to war or even rant.
They will protect us from
The sun and the cold.
They will be our favorite
Apple tree until we are old.
They let birds have a nest.
They even let woodpeckers peck.
They don’t even fight when we
Nail into them.
The baby opossum’s
Hang upside down—
The tree likes all
Animals I have found.
So if we humans
Had once ounce
Of wisdom like a tree
The world would be
A way better place to be.
