the old trees

The old trees stand on the side road
The decades the old trees stood
The falling leaves of many years
The people watch it as they pass by

In fact nobody cares about it
They watch the road hardly on the trees
The old trees give shade along the road
There is no appreciation but complaints

It takes an outsider to appreciate it
The shady shadows against the sun raging light
It gives the people the shade above their heads
If only they stop and smell the aroma of nature

Now some old trees chopped off
The developer wants to expand the road
The shoplots and the new bus station
The old trees had to go

Maybe in 2 years time
The developer will plant trees
When everything is done and completed
Let the shade of trees make the day
