Carol, Age 12, Perth, WA, Australia
How I love the bush!
It is the true beauty of nature,
The root of freshness,
The power of growth.
Trees are useless?
You need a brain aid!
They’re slow, enduring forces,
Straining to win the sky,
Trees are the earth’s life long effort to speak to heaven,
They stand tall and proud,
Content with their natural beauty,
supporting each other throughout their life,
Creating the most beautiful view ever.
I believe the earth would be a different place,
If every land in this world,
was covered with bushes.
World, oh world,
You should let all the greens,
Remind us how we used to be,
Who we should be.
