Love Trees

‪“When I pass on to my reward,‬

‪Whatever that may be,‬

‪I’d like my friends to think of me‬

‪As one who loved a tree.‬

‪I may not have a statesman’s poise,‬

‪Nor thrill a crowd with speech,‬

‪But I can benefit mankind‬

‪If I set out a beech.”‬

‪ – from I Love A Tree by Samuel N. Baxter‬
