A tribute to trees in students' words

  1. 1. A Tribute to Treesin students’ words 14 – 31 March 2011Escola Secundária de Francisco Franco
  2. 2. “Thank you!”I don’t know how to start,But I’ll try to make art.Our planet is full of air pollutionAnd we need to find an efficient solution.Let’s all come together to helpBefore it gets too late.Too much smoking of cigarettes,Too much driving of cars.I wish there was no smoke in the sky,Shadows blocking the sun over mountains so high,Garbage in the seas,Or plastic bags hanging in the trees.If this is what you want the world to be,Help make it pollution free.There is no guaranteeAbout how easy this task will be.It may take more work and more time,But in the end our planet will be fine.So, think about what you can doBecause, in the future, Earth will say: “Thank You!” Carla Castro Sofia Rei Susana Videira 12º1
  3. 3. The tree commandments, according to the TreeI am a tree, I provide shadow,Shelter and food, I am your friend.I do not seek war, for I’m rootedTo the ground in which I struggle.You shall not kill a tree,Or never your soul will be freeFrom Beelzebub’s death sea.You shall not idol yourself,For I live longer than you. Do not plant me in vain, For I will only feel pain. Remember my birth, Where it happened, and let It remain clean, my earth. You shall not take me down For fruit, for you are free To take and kill your offspring hunger.You shall not pollute my soil,Death sits on it, waiting everyFall to see my leaves boil,At the Winter hard cold envy.André Bazenga, Augusto Silva, Filipe Rodrigues, 12º10
  4. 4. C’mon humanity, What are you doing to me? I’m your home And you treat me so badly. My trees make you breathe fresh air, But you’re still destroying them, Like you don’t even care. But be aware! Because what you took for granted One day will disappear, And the nature you know May soon become just a memory. All your greed and irresponsibility Are polluting your world. You must be ozone friendly And take care of your home. Take care of the soil if you want to stay alive, Plant trees on it to help us survive. I’ll do what I can for you, So help me… I need trees, I need you!Alexandre Gomes12º10
  5. 5. Money is not the philosophy AWhen the Earth is without treesFeeding the machines of the factory RAnd spoiling out the seas B O Plant a real tree, And you will live naturally R Just as it should be A Planet with harmony. A war has started against CFC’s D And you have to choose your side Whether sky killer or ozone friendly A Don’t leave your Nature aside. Y Guilherme Coelho André Dias Mário Fernandes 12º1
  6. 6. With all the CO2 in the atmosphere We urgently need more trees down here We all hope for the best of all So, to start, everyone should plant a tree on their hall Everyone should help this cause, No one can have a pause. About trees, we can never have enough, Because lives without them are really tough. We can’t only use words, Let us act, let’s plant trees all around the world. LET’S PLANT TREES ALL AROUND THE WORLD.João Pedro Jardim12º10
  7. 7. I can’t damage a treeOr pollute the airLike a man without responsibilityYou have to be fairAnd, naturally treat Nature peacefully.If you don’t take careYou will be punished seriouslySo don’t you dareTo damage a treeAs it is an enemy.If you want to save your lifeTreat Nature as your wifeWith humanity, responsibility,Harmony and honestlyThis is how you have to be. Nuno Albino, Rodrigo Andrade, Afonso Vargas, 12º1
  8. 8. Arbor dayI wasn’t cut out for this,As trees aren’t meant to be cut,I’m sick of the human consumistic attitudeSo much as the lumber mill needs more wood.You can turn your back or you can plant a seed.You can choose compassion over universal greed.You’ve destroyed, consumed and killedAnd now you’ve turned black the Earth’s lungsWhich were green and big and beautiful...Now just join us.Fight for the cause.Together as one!Together! Fierceful!InêsCotrim12º1
