Who Tells the Maple When to Shed Its Leaves?

Who Tells the Maple When to Shed Its Leaves?

A Chapter by Louis McKraker
"

(2011 Ashland, Alabama)

"




Who tells the maple when to shed its leaves?

  Who sells the words to the rhymes?

Who markets the pollen to the bees?

  Who can make these things victims of the time?


             Like you and I--



Who is to censor the maple’s nudity?

  Who can reprimand the woodpecker for vandal crimes?

Who can discriminate how the shores receives the sea?

  Who can make these things victims of the times?


             It isn't you or I.

Humans sacrificing nature. And killing it bit by bit. So called to make our homes and living better and more comfortable. No wonder a lot of humans are going back to the land. That gives so much. And the rest take and take and never give back. Great read. Makes you ponder and contemplate the truth.

We have no control on planet earth at all when it comes to mother nature. She will create havoc or act like a lamb when she pleases. The areas we can control, can make a difference, we usually mess up. Good read Loius.

This is unique and beautiful. I loved the beginning verses the most. I kind of think that it would be even better if you left out the last part, but that is just my opinion. You should listen to your own poetic voice. I enjoyed reading this regardless.

We think we are more than we are and we try to do more than we can and the results haven't worked out too well
Although I would like to do something about those damn woodpeckers that keep killing all my ornamental trees
Well expressed

Gee
Reading this sure fires home the fact how little we are in control of either nature of for that matter our own mortality.
