The poem, "Think Like a Tree" by Karen I. Shragg is artfully displayed on this colorful wall hanging. Artisans working through Saidpur Enterprises in Bangladesh have viable employment for their creations. The poem reads, “Soak up the sun / Affirm lifeÆs magic / Be graceful in the wind / Stand tall after a storm / Feel refreshed after it rains / Grow strong without notice / Be prepared for each season / Provide shelter to strangers / Hang tough through a cold spell / Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring / Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky / Be still long enough to / hear your own leaves rustling.”
