As Lovely As A Tree

The poet, Joyce Kilmer wrote the following poem: 

TREES

I think that I shall never see 
A poem lovely as a tree. 
 
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed 
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. 
 
I love trees...the following is a photo essay of the old Ironwood tree outside our local library. She is such a lovely creature! The pictures speak louder than any words I could write.
 
Enjoy!
