Pine Tree Sketch
I shall always appreciate the kindness of a Maple and the wisdom of an Oak, but without Pines, a forest will always seem empty to me. There is something about the presence of a Pine, a protection from above, an overshadowing strength.
– J.R.R Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
“Rain may fall and wind may blow,
And many miles be still to go,
But under a tall
treeI will lie,
And let the clouds go sailing by.”
