A View

They’re cutting down trees
a few gardens away.
Does it spoil or improve
the view? I can’t say.
But now I wish I knew
what the birds will do
to tuck themselves away.

    Sometimes a tree has to go down if is sick…
    Hope the birdies can find new homes.

    It’s always sad when a tree is cut down, for whatever reason. But that’s life I guess. Although some are cut for no good reason and that is more than just sad. Some neighbours of ours, long gone now, they moved, cut down five beautiful cherry blossoms on land adjoining their house and it was common land too. There was an almighty outcry!
