I just received a little Live Oak tree from the hospice that helped care for my daughter before she passed away in February. What a nice jesture, the Live Oak lives for hundreds of years.

Attached was this little poem:

Trees, by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Againsth 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.

We planted the tree near the pond and the homeade bench my dh made. This must be where I will plant a memory garden next spring.

Hi Doris, thanks for having a nice place like this!

No, I didn't know it was a song. I don't think I've heard it but would love to!

What a beautiful song!!

Doris, thank you for the link! I really enjoyed Paul Robeson singing the song Trees!

I'm going to put it right here with the poem. Smiling

I am glad you enjoyed the song, and the "Trees" too bad they have a restriction on showing it here.

I remembered posting this picture and had to come look. It's been seven years. Wow.

Here's what the tree looks like today.
