Only God Can Make a Tree


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.
~Joyce Kilmer

It’s that time of year…how about sharing colorful tree shots from where you live? Remmeber, this space is yours every Friday. If you’d like to submit a photo (or photos), attach it/them to an email (, put Your Perfect Shot in the subject line, and include any information you’d like me to add to the post.
