The article describes a grove of birch trees which stands at the edge of small farm pond, citing the author's experiences whenever he and some friends visit the grove. The author claims that he and his friends like birches, specifically their white columns and strong black calligraphy. They are good trees to think about for anyone who would express himself clearly.
