A wetland may prevent our water pollution,
Proven scientifically, this is a true solution !
Adding plants will reduce the soil erosion,
Plant roots hold the soil to stop corrosion !
The birds seem to prefer the wetland tree,
‘Cause plenty of food and life hassle free !
If your yard stays wet in the Spring,
Do not hesitate to give EPA a ring !
You will get good idea how to make wetland trees grow,
And once they are grown, you’ll have less lawn to mow !
So, for excellent guidance, please call EPA Wetlands Section,
Because they are the experts to give you the good direction !!!!
