    Poem Commentary

    Environmentalists can't seem to halt the destruction of our natural forests and wild life, while species both plant and animal that are endangered, are being destroyed at an increasing and alarming rate. Perhaps it's time for a higher power than our governments to intervene? Perhaps it's time for "The Watcher of the Trees".

    Watcher of the Trees

    Destruction
    Blood flows out of trees onto the Earth’s floor.
    Half the rainforests have been destroyed
    I know, I’m the Watcher of the Trees.

    Spirit of the Leaves,
    I’m the Green Man of past centuries.
    Foolish race, human race,
    taking more than you’re put here for.

    I’m the Watcher of the Trees,
    whose numbers have purpose.
    Can man say the same?
    Destroying the children for profit and gain.

    Spirit of the Leaves,
    Angel of the Canopy,
    each brother downed,
    one less cure found.

    Can you conceive such words as these?
    Soon you shall not breathe.
    I’m the voice of your atrocities.
    Soon you shall not breathe.

    Foolish race, human race,
    find your place, or you'll be no more.

    Such intense words! I really like how you put feeling into the trees with the human quality of blood. Too bad humans only care for things that give back to them, and don't understand that we must give back as well.

    Can you conceive such words as these? I'm the voice of your atrocities. Amazing and compelling write, complex and nearly supernatural in it's variety. 10...

    Everyone should play their part in looking out for the enviroment. However, so many do not become concerned until it begins to effect them personally. That is a great message that comes through in this poem! Another great one, dragonfly!

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
