Poetry: Three Short Poems

Birds to People

Why all the noise,
tall things, blinding

Turn it all off. So
we will sing
and sing songs
like never


Constance Lombardo, 2017

Grateful Respiration

Breathe the forest air
Exchange molecules gladly
Give thanks in your way

Carol Diamond, Inspired by Diana Beresford-Kroeger’s book “The Global Forest”


Let your children climb
and fall in love with a tree—
making their own world
