“Listening to the Leaves” by Katherine Gallagher

Hello, my friends. Are we sitting comfortably, 
nice and comfortably, after all that blowing
out in the forest? It’s good to see you: oak,
maple, elm, larch, sycamore, beech –
bright in your autumn colours  . . . And 
there’s room on the carpet for all of us.


It’ll be good to share our stories.   We can tell 
those humans how we like to live and breathe
on our beautiful planet, just like them --
drink lots of water and get food from the soil too,
talk to the birds and other creatures -- just like humans . . .
indeed. . . Bring on the stories, the music – Hooray  . . .
