Birch tree – the colorfast bark

Birch tree – the colorfast bark

Birch
The white tree

Covering the major plains
Of Central Europe
And Northern Asia

The downy birch
The silver birch
The dwarf birch
The moor birch
The mountain birch

birch tree

So many species
Pioneering
And growing on cleared lands

The bark, stripped from the tree
And its wood
Well known by manufacturers
All over the world

The inner bark
Can be eaten
And the rising sap of spring
Is used in herbal medecine

And yet in spring
Its pollen
Can provoke hay fever

Its beautiful little leaves
Trilling in the wind
Messengers of better weather

A great fabric!
