Tree Songs

by GC

Wind whistles
through palm trees
a alleluia chorus
of green tree frogs
comes in on the upbeat
clatter of the fronds

Live oak branches
wave in wind
while green anoles
write happy songs
of scampering among
resurrection ferns

Slithering snakes
slipping over branches
play assonant-dissonant
on the bark
of loblolly pines

Nature's tree songs
often joyful,
sometimes eternal
change with the
weather patterns
sometimes become dirges
