"I think that I shall never see 

a poem lovely as a tree

a tree whose hungry mouth is pressed

against the earths 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 blossom snow has lain;

who intimately lives with rain.

poems were made by fools like me

But only God can make a tree"
