The tree the didn't have to fight
For sun and sky and air and light
But lived out on the open plain
And always got its share of rain

Never became the "Forest King,"
But lived and died a scrubby thing

The man that never had to toil
The man that never tasted spoil
Who never had to win his share
Of sun and sky and light and air
Never became a manly man
But lived and died where he began

Good timber does not grow with ease
The stronger the winds the tougher the trees
The further the sky the greater the length
Ther more the storms the more the strength
By sun and cold and rain and snow
In " trees or man" good timbers grow

Where thickest stands the " Forest Growth,"
We find the beauty of both
Who hold a converse with the stars
Whose broken branches show many stars
Of many winds and much of strife
This is the common law of life
