Trees
 
(For Mrs. Henry Mills Alden)
 
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

All limited editions are closed, but we will sell the prints we have in stock.
If you want a limited edition print, let us know; we will tell you if we have one, what size we have, and the price.
Apart from these limited edition prints, Rising Dove no longer sells prints directly, nor do we offer framing.
Instead, we are concentrating on selling digital images.
 
You may request that any image be sold through Zazzle or Fine Art America.
