Christmas Trees by Robert Frost

We own a swath of property which has been called," BIG BUSH " for
generations in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada. We bought these properties
because of the beautiful expanse of pine trees,water and wildlife, we will
be building a home overlooking all these pines & lakes and will retire
here. Last week we watched as a man took his young son out of their
vehicle, opened our gate,which had a sign on it stating, "No Trespassing" ,
walked across our property with axe in hand, went up to one of our lovely
pine trees and set about chopping it down! He had his son drag our tree out
across our property, out our gate and load it into their van... no
permission was given to this man to do this! We were shocked at the lack of
morals he is
showing & teaching his young son and the brazen theft he committed before
our eyes. He cut down and stole one of our most beautiful trees from our
FRONT YARD! We ourselves DON'T even cut a tree down to decorate at
Christmas - we beleive that trees are our air and have a place in this
world like all else. Our daughters have instituted a rule that if we or if
we were to let someone cut down a tree then they MUST plant 2 in its place.
I guess we need to find this thief and have him plan 2 trees in spring.

I read this poem by, Robert Frost to mean, that, he would rather GIVE away
a tree to friends and family and say "Merry Christmas" when he gives them
to them than sell them to uncaring people for 3 cents each!

Tears came to my eyes at the thought of selling one's precious trees, but
what thoughtfulness to want to share with friends the trees' beauty by
including a tree in each letter.

I picked this poem to read for a prestentation in my drama class and like
everyone thought that it was pretty boring. Like it took forever to read.
Although when I read it like 4 or 5 times I could understand the meaning to
it. (analyzation)

I once told a friend that there is no such tning as an ugly Christmas Tree
and now I firmly believe that statement. Whether in your home, garden, the
woods, or a tree farm they will warm ones heart with a bueaty that reminds
one the meaning of this season of peace, joy, and glad tidings. Upon
reading Frost's poem "Christmas Trees" I too wish I could send a tree to my
friends and family in thier Christmas card, maybe I will send just a
needle or to with hopes that thier oder will fill the card and then one's
senses upon opening.
