The Woods

I am the heat of your hearth on cold winders nights,
The shade screening your from the summer sun,
And my fruits are refreshing draughts,
Quenching your thirst as you journey on.

I am the beam that holds your house,
The board of your table,
The bed on which you lie,
and the timber that builds your boat.

I am the handle of your hoe,
The door of your homestead,
The wood of your cradle,
and the shell of your coffin.

You who pass me by,
Listen to my prayer,
And harm me not.
