Thoughtful Thursday

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



A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth's 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
1886-1918

my grandmother Hazel's (b. 1910) favorite poem.
