Wicked Awesome Poem Wednesday: Trees, Joyce Kilmer

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.

Pretty...I appreciate the relaxing photo. Ugh I'm in dry Colorado- I would love to see trees like that!

Thank you! That's a friend's place on Prudence Island in RI ... it is, indeed, lovely.
