THEME FOR NEXT WEEK MARCH 1-7

Post by Glad E Olah on Fri Feb 27, 2009 3:32 pm

A poem about a certain tree or trees in general.


The following is in honor of a published poet. I believe all of you are familar with this poem about a tree.



I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
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.


©Joyce Kilmer. 1886-1918


Note: Did you notice the birth and death year of this poet? Anyone know why she died so young?

For those of us who have not written our tree poem there is still time to do so.
