How Many Trees

by Angela Umphers Rueger

How many trees does it take to clothe a mountain?
How many grains form the river’s watershed?
How many drops does it take to fill a fountain?
How many hairs wave and toss upon my head?

So many times troubles pierce me like an arrow;
So many questions go unanswered in my mind.
Yet this I know: He who notices the sparrow,
Holds me in His hand, ever loving, ever kind.
