I think that I shall never see…

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
pelicans_7576 e
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
pelicans_7580 e
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray,
work_7471 e
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair
sunset_6884
Upon whose blossom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
pelicans_7581 e

Poems were made by fools like me
But only God can make a tree.
