  • Love Of The Tree For The Boy
    752 words
    The Giving Tree is a modern children literature written by Shel Siverstien, which is also one of his first successful piece of work. It is about an apple tree who always gives and gives and a boy who always takes and takes. This might be another story to read before bed times for the kids but however, it portrays so many things, from deforestation to modern society. Personally, I believe that The Giving Tree portrays the theme of selflessness versus selfishness, like the unconditional love a par...
  • Creek And The Beauty
    827 words
    Visiting a waterfall, especially on a hot sultry day, can be a favorite way to spend a day. You get in your car, drive for miles, then get out and walk the remainder of the way to a waterfall. Civilization has cleared and marked a pathway for you and the many thousands like you that have also come to enjoy these named landmarks. Rarely do you get to enjoy the natural beauty of one by just stepping out into your own backyard. Behind my house, barely noticeable, is a trail leading through the wood...
  • Large Oak Tree With Squirrels
    839 words
    Near Death Experience It was a warm fall day in early October, a day that I recall quite vividly. The smells of the transition from summer to fall were in the air, accompanied by the sounds of birds singing and the wind blowing through the trees. It was on this beautiful day that my existence was almost terminated. A quick hunting trip could have ended my life. After school on this day, a friend and I decided to go hunting before our evening basketball practice. I really don't know why we called...
  • Our House In Columbia
    474 words
    Fond Memories As I grew up my family and I have lived in a few places, but none were more memorable than our house in Columbia, Maryland. The neighborhood I grew up in was a brand new town house development. The house colors were tan, white, green or yellow. My neighborhood was shaped like a gigantic eight. In the center of each circle that made up the eight was a center island that was dense with trees, and had honeysuckle plants that gave off a sweet almost hypnotic smell. On the outskirts of ...
  • My Step Dad About The Tree
    876 words
    Natural disasters are meant to cause destruction and to break thing apart. Sometimes they end up bringing people together. In September of 1996 Hurricane Fran swept through my town with the power of mother nature behind it all the way. Fran brought winds that reached speeds of close to 100 miles per hour, tornadoes, and golf ball sized hail. Needless to say that this storm did a lot of damage. All over the town people did not have any power, could not use their water. I remember how dark everyth...
  • Beautiful Horse Chestnut Tree Just Two Fields
    819 words
    The place to be described is totally imaginary, although it may bear some resemblance to a childhood memory of yours. The house and surrounding fields and mountains (for it is these I will endeavour to describe in different seasons) are so exquisitely picturesque: The long, wide, oak slatted cabin with the rolling fields stretching far into the distance, and beyond. Behind the house (as I like to call it) is an expanse of some three hundred or so yards before abruptly halting to make way for a s...

  • Colored Piece Of Cellophane
    465 words
    Landscape Writing and the Lorrain Glass Looking through my Lorrain glass I saw different moods of a scene. I sat on top of my car and looked out over a field of apple trees, raspberry bushes, and pumpkin patches. At the end of the fields was a huge white house with a ton of windows. The house had a wide porch that went all the way around to the back. I couldn't see much detail from such a great distance, but the smoke coming out of the chimney told me there was someone inside. I chose three diff...
  • Old Tree
    981 words
    Grandfathers House His house, an edifice of dilapidated wood, reminds me of age. The white siding showed evidence of neglect. Paint chips had fallen off and collected on the window ledge and shudders, leaving small patches of wood showing. The shudders were brown and rough, like that of the bark of an old tree. Hanging askew, they gave the impression of experience. Before the front entrance stood a moss enclosed porch. The moss hung off the porch like motionless waves of the sea. Mounted in the ...

Civilization has cleared and marked a pathway for you and many others like you that have also come to enjoy these landmarks. Rarely do you get to enjoy the natural beauty of one by just stepping out into your grandparents ...
