A
Tall tree
In the forest
Branches wide
And leaves aplenty
It’s a haven for nature
A place for birds to rest
A safe place to build a nest
Offers us shelter from the storm
A shield from the rain and the snow
A cool place where we sit and dream
Theories evolved beneath their branches
Many poems have been inspired by trees
And I think that Joyce Kilmer’s ode to the tree
Is without doubt the most wonderful tribute of all
I think that I
Shall never
See a poem
Lovely as
A tree
