Oregon’s Evergreens – Arbor Day 2020

Oregon Evergreens

Stately they stand

Strong branches holding new life

Sheltered from storms

As wind and rain beat

Steadily upon their mossy boughs

Stately they stand

Green giants waving

Strong branches holding new life

All across our land

Some are chosen

As lumber to keep people

Sheltered from storms

Triple Haiku Cascade

To exist as a nation, to prosper as a state, and to live as a people, we must have trees.” — President Theodore Roosevelt.

“Other holidays repose upon the past; Arbor Day proposes for the future.”

Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long
