Haikus in praise of trees

From small acorns grew
The timbers for great warships
The old ‘Hearts of Oak’

Tall, proud poplar trees
Reaching right up to the sky
In a line like sentries

Poor weeping willows
Branches drooping to the ground
Green fronds kiss the earth

Blossom in the spring
Rosy apples in the fall
Grown from tiny pips
