Trees... I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree... ...A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray... Joyce Kilmer

"I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree …" ~ Joyce Kilmer • tree photo from Germany: Marc Gommert on deviantart

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest against the earth’s sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear a nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree. ~Joyce Kilmer
