Trees are a source of joy and unheralded moral wisdom

In Wisdom of Trees Walt Whitman, said trees are a source of joy and unheralded moral wisdom. 

And, “When we have learned how to listen to trees,” poet Hermann Hesse wrote in his lyrical love letter to our arboreal companions“then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.” 

Two generations earlier, a different titan of poetic sentiment Walt Whitman extolled trees not only as a source of joy but as a source of unheralded moral wisdom and an improbable yet formidable model of what is noblest in the human character.
