Childhood remembrances of a birch tree.

Gigantic Birch Tree

by Rosemary Everson1

Birch tree, standing deciduous and gigantic,
trunk is round, made of lovely hardwood.
Pale bark, bright heart-shaped leaves, panoramic,
remembering the birch tree in my childhood.

Trunk is round, made of lovely hardwood,
white branches, porous fibrous tissue,
if structured for pulpwood, loggers understood.

Pale bark, bright heart-shaped leaves, panoramic,
paper based products, manufactured wood,
strength in tension, cellulous fiber, organic.

Remembering the birch tree in my childhood,
a birch tree so gorgeous and tall,
you're God's creation, wonders of good.

Trimeric Treat contest entry

The birch tree has many uses. I remember thinking how gorgeous a birch tree was and still is...the white bark and its branches which holds the heart-shaped leaves firmly.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
