Magpie 35

They're all around

They were up and now they're down

They were green and soft

now they crackle underfoot

fill gutters, divert streams

They have changed

they blanket the ground, protecting it,

keeping it warm, encouraging its bugs and worms.

By spring they will be transformed

into new earth.
That's Magpie Tale number 35. Join the fun over here.

The cycle of life, simply preparing this good earth for the next generation. We humans could learn a little from these trees.
