Praise the Pine Cone

Praise the pine cone

fruit of the mighty conifer.

Male and female,

pollen and seed producers,

woody and scaly.

Praise the pine cone

pop, sputter and crackle

in cook-out fires.

They cover the ground

all year round.

Glue them, paint them,

decorate them, find

the longest, smoothest, curviest.

Praise the pine cone.

They are free.

If they counted for a penny

brown and round, beggars would be rich.

Praise the pine cone

and its tree,

it grows and gives

insects homes,

birds nests,

children fun.

Praise the pine cone.
