Seven Days (iii)


On the third day, Man looked upon the forests of the Earth
And saw that they were beautiful.
And Man said, “Let us cut the timber for our homes and grind the wood for our use.”
And Man did.
And the lands became barren and the trees were gone.
And Man said, “It is good.”

Kenneth Ross (Reprinted from The Idaho Wildlife Review, May-June, 1967)
