A Poem Lovely As A Tree 
-  Joyce Kilmer 

I think 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 to 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.
