Packed together shoulder to shoulder,
Stretching higher than a rainbow’s sigh,
The redwoods reach up and scrape the sky.
No wider than a river’s grin,
No longer than a cloud can cry.
What majesty these giants portray,
As they reign from day to day.
Their subjects are content
For gentle do the scepters sway.
Only the wind can make them smile
As they share wisdom for awhile.
Tall and proud they guard the land
Gentle giants mile after mile.
