    A wilderness...
    Filled with innocents...
    and evil...
    civilized... and uncivil....
    Creatures of yesterday....
    Those of tomorrow...
    Cries of the birds....
    And a crows sorrow...

    Embellished in the mist...
    Of a Cave...
    Hidden...
    the maze of a forest gone bad...
    Corrupted by what has enter its throne...
    and gone...
    Like a whisper in the wind...
    The trees fall...

    One by one...
    Old ones and young ones...
    All done...
    Can't hold on...
    Too tired...
    and ready to fall down...

    Too weak to blow its branches in the wind...
    To feel it blooms its flowers once again...
    or the birds that once lived in the homes...
    of the holes...
    that held their loved ones...
    from all serpents and things...
    Now all the trees fall down...
    What does that mean?....

    The beginning... And the ending…
    Of a new being....

    Ecology poetically written about!

    Your imagery was splendid, the story painful but true.
    Ecologist predicted this for our children me and you.
    That waters now green had once been blue.
    That seasons changed in order and tree's touched
    the face of God.
    Now there are bitter acid rain rivers and erosion
    to our sod.
    Farmers farms are dying and Green Peace advocates
    are crying..."Why oh why didn't they listen"?
    The Son who hang from a significant tree
    asked that "Forgive them for they know not what
    they do!"
    But, we did!
    Blessings on ya house and your scribing, scribe on!:peace:
