TREES BY JOYCE KILMER

  1. I think I
  2. Shall never see
  3. A poem as lovely
  4. As a tree
  5. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
  6. Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast
  7. A tree that looks at God all day
  8. And lifts her leafy arms to pray
  9. A tree that may in Summer wear
  10. A nest of robins in her hair
  11. Upon whose bosom snow has lain
  12. Who intimately lives with rain
  13. Poems are made by fools like me
  14. But only God can make a tree
