Bloganuary – Day 30

Each day of January participants are emailed a thought provoking question that can be turned into a blog post.

Describe Yourself as a Tree

I memorized this poem when I was in elementary school. I still remember reciting it to anyone who would listen.

🌳 TREES 🌳
by Joyce Kilmer


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.
