Conservation of forest

World Forest Day falls on March 21.

`It’s tree time, folks’.

`Ode To Trees’ one of the favorite poem
by Kahlil gibran

“Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky.
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
that we may record our emptiness”.

Truly, Kahlil Gibran stands among the most intriguing voices ever to scratch words onto a page. His mystically beautiful and profoundly poetic prose burns to the very root of what it means to be human. He masterfully tackles issues we are all warned not to talk about and gently illuminates the darkness that separates the sides.
Few other poems on the world forest day

think that I shall never seeA poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prestAgainst the earth's sweet flowing breast;A tree that looks at God all dayAnd lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wearA nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.Poems are made by fools like me,But only God can make a tree.
~ Joyce Kilmer, "Trees," 1914 ~

I think that I shall never seeA billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,I'll never see a tree at all.
~ Ogden Nash

God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, "Ah!"
~ Joseph Campbell ~

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts,
as for that subtle something,
that quality of air that emanation from old trees,
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson ~

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver.
~ Martin Luther ~

Who leaves the pine-tree, leaves his friend,Unnerves his strength, invites his end.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Woodnotes" ~

I willingly confess to so great a partiality for trees as tempts me to respect a man in exact proportion to his respect for them.
~ James Russell Lowell ~

He that planteth a tree is a servant of God, heprovideth a kindness for many generations, andfaces that he hath not seen shall bless him.~ Henry Van Dyke ~

To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
~ Helen Keller ~

He who plants a treePlants a hope.
~Lucy Larcom, from 'Plant a Tree' ~
