Tree Squares, Day 25

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree.

Trees

BY JOYCE KILMER

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.

This is my next entry in Becky’s July Squares Photo Challenge – Trees.

Ever expanding one star at a time, my cosmos is a galaxy of thoughts and creativity where you can find poetry, short stories, photography and so much more.

    1. Thanx Becky. I (almost) agonised over the photo to pair with the poem, but no other impacted me as much as the image of these two trees in the fog.
