  • Girl Power- The Arborist Lumber Jane

    Girl Power! Take the Torch Ladies

    I make a pretty good living, where "money grows on trees"
    my friends call me "crazy", call me LumberJane please
    Ropes,saws and harnesses, the working tools of my trade
    my mornings. noons, and dusk, are spent working the blade

    I've always loved big trees, my youth I fondly remember
    this little girl sought adventure, a tomboy tree branch bender
    The views from the top of a Juniper,continue to liberate soul
    long days spent in the forest, sun sets and I am whole

    An every day occurrence, nicks and cuts along my arms
    doesn't minimize my passion, my "forever forest" charms
    A simple life I'm living, and I sleep like a log at night
    a sense of pride worth giving, to my friends shaded in light

    They say this job's for the boys, the ladies will never cut it
    but that's just one of their ploys, I'll show them I am fit
    When a tree falls in the forest, that is my greatest fear
    a friend for life's my promise, as I hold you near and dear

      Actually Paula, I have a photographer, a nurse and the youngest is a graduate student planning to be a school counselor. I am all on board for girl power. The men have had their day. Let the ladies lead. Thanks for reading and commenting.

        I thought you'd posted a picture a while back of one of your daughters up trimming trees. My bad. But congratulations on all they've accomplished. I think it's not an either/or but a both/and. There are many great leaders and little depended on their gender.

        I thought I remembered the photo and a Lumber Jane poem by you, too. Hmm...

        Paula and Muttado, I figured I would be fortunate to have more readers drop in. I’m still a lucky man to have you both back for a second look. I am never gonna be the same guy since I had three daughters. Girl Power revolution and I’m on the train with them.

            Hello Bobby, The rough and tumble of the great outdoors as you celebrate the many and all encompassing strengths of the feminine. Well done indeed. Fond regards, Tony.

              Awesome Bobby! Women are natural leaders 😁 unfortunately for the world we award power to those who wrestle for it.
