Nice mix of styles. I like what you attempted here.

Hope I never fall victim to a nail! :X

Thanks for posting

A nice tribute to trees.

Once you begin comparing trees to people, your metaphor falters a little; specifically in the last 5 lines, when none of those things are true of people. Consider re-working lines 9 and 10.

Charming piece.

The info regarding the Vikings and the rhyming poetry were both delightful!
I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I found it enlightening, informative and entertaining - what more could one ask? Kudos!

You're right, they are right under - or above - our noses and we take them for granted. Thanks for expressing that idea in prose and poetry. Yeggy
