I love trees more than I love humans. Though they get angry during autumn, they love me during spring. Some trees close their leaves in the night but during bright daylight they twinkle and smile through different hues of yellow, orange and green.
The tree is so determined to make me go closer to it, and when I do get closer, it touches me with the lower branches. When I go further away from the tree, it beckons me by moving its arms. At the riverbank, trees provide me with a canopied bed covered by flowers filled with dewdrops. The coniferous trees which do not flower are also equally loveable. The ‘Red Bird of Paradise’ tree with the red hat flowers calls me so humbly. The bamboos stand proudly like me! This is the love trees have me and I love them, more than I do humans.
So, Therefore, Hear me! Please do not cut them down, because when you do so my heartbeat slows down and stops.
