Bike Trails

Let’s get the little ones shredding!
Tearing up roots, gathering fagots,
Sweeping with branches, leaves and debris.
Beckoning pathways for bikes, ATVs.

Tearing up roots, gathering fagots,
Mitten-ed hands scoop them up swiftly
Break off the icicles crisply.

Sweeping with branches, leaves and debris.
Working construction so all can now see
The free-styling pathway country.

Beckoning pathways for bikes, ATVs.
Temples of trees making way for the speed;
Backyard flow tracks for the bucks and the steeds!

    Very clever, Jeanne. I love tree pictures.

    Dear Catherine
    I was so wasted yesterday after comforting all my relatives present at the Boston
    Marathon. To center, I printed David Harrison’s post of “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer, carried it around all day as a pocket poem and then memorized it.

    Dear Jeanne,
    I hope that your dear ones are all okay. The sadness is so heavy. Maybe my blooming cherry tree came along at the right time. I’m glad that you felt comforted by Kilmer’s poem. Your friend, David

    I was thinking of you after hearing of that tragedy and wondering if it had touched your personally. So sorry…
