Day 29 – Lovely As A Tree

lone winter tree on the horizon


lone winter tree on the horizonI 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

    The poem is perfect! Love the photo you used. God does makes beautiful things and I think your poem is one of them too. 🙂

    Beautiful photo and lovely poem, Molly. Today, when out on my walk, a tree that is usually bright with the plumeria flower was completely bare – without a single leaf. It looked beautiful even without its leaves and flowers. There’s something slightly melancholy about it – makes me want to hug it.

    Love the skeleton of the tree against the sky. Is this taken in Kansas??? That’s the only place I’ve seen a random tree erupting in the middle of otherwise flat farm fields.

      Oh I wish I was in Kansas but in fact it was taken in Hertfordshire, just outside of a small town called Welwyn Garden City.


  8. I can spend hours looking at the structure of trees – so beautiful and unique – love the composition too!
