"Trees" by Joyce Kilmer
'Trees' poem by Joyce Kilmer, illustrated by Miriam A. Kilmer
Signed Archival Giclée Print © 2003 Miriam A. Kilmer
(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
