A poem about loss

The lonely trees whistled

A message of what has passed

When times were happy.

The grass is the audience

And the birds are the critics.

Thanks! It is about the loss of trees and green spaces to development.

Thanks! I wrote it many years ago. It is about the destruction of nature and how nature mourns for its loss.
