Fall Foliage Series: Trees

by Joyce Kilmer

Trees_Landscape - Page 004

Trees_Portrait - Page 004I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree.

Trees_Landscape - Page 008A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

Trees_Landscape - Page 003

Trees_Portrait - Page 007A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

Trees_Landscape - Page 001

Trees_Landscape - Page 002A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Trees_Portrait - Page 006

Trees_Portrait - Page 005Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain

Trees_Portrait - Page 001Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
