Joyce Coomer: Lament for wanton destruction of natural beauty
For those who care: Two glorious trees whose branches and leaves provided homes for the birds and a voice for the wind. Slaughtered for no good reason. - JOYCE M. COOMER
By Joyce M. Coomer
On our road . . .
- Day lilies. Gone.
- Jewelweed. Gone.
- Chicory. Gone.
- Clumps of daisies and wildflowers I cannot name. Gone.
Destroyed by man's fear of the Un-neat.
On the approach to town . . .
- Two glorious trees whose branches and leaves provided homes for the birds and a voice for the wind. Slaughtered for no good reason.
I do not know how much more wanton destruction my soul can stand.
- Joyce M. Coomer
