      Thanks for posting this. Mr. Malloch was associate editor of American Lumberman magazine, and became known nationally as the "Lumberman's poet".

      I did intend to illustrate my response here with a picture of lumberjacks, but it turns out none of the illustrations I have stored on my computer is appropriate for this forum.

      In lieu of illustration, then, I'll chime in with another of my faves from this poet:

      The tree that never had to fight

      For sun and sky and air and light

      But stood out in the open plain

      And always got its share of rain,

      Never became a forest king,

      But lived and died a scrubby thing.

      Good timber does not grow with ease;

      The stronger wind, the stronger trees;

      The further sky, the greater length;

      The more the storm, the more the strength.

      By sun and cold, by rain and snow,

      In trees and men good timbers grow.

      Cheers, Stephen. And here's to good timbers in trees and men.
