I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree,
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowing
A tree that looks at God all day '
And lifts her leafy arms to pray; ., '
A tree that may in summer wear ' v" y
, 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.
