A Summer Reflection…..



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.


Poems are made by fools like me but only God can make a tree.


                                                                                  Joyce Kilmer
