Villanelle of Trees in My Forest

Trees in my forest reach up to the sky
To nourish their base with rays from the sun
They bask in its warmth each limb to supply

Even the tree trunks are prone to comply
Praising in silent prayer til day is done
Trees in my forest reach up to the sky

Knowing that God keeps a bounty on high
Of sunlight and rain and goodness home spun
They bask in its warmth each limb to supply

In the dark of the night the branches rely
On moonlight and star bright to bless each one
Trees in my forest reach up to the sky

Now, dawn after breaking garners a glad sigh
For greenery grateful for the long run
Trees in my forest reach up to the sky
They bask in its warmth each limb to supply
