TRAVEL & POETRY: Trees by Joyce Kilmer


by Joyce Kilmer

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

Malacapas, Pangasinan PH (April 2016)


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

Villa Balinmanok Resort, Dasol Pangasinan PH (April 2016)


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.

Kiltepan Peak, Sagada PH (May 2011)


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

Anguib Beach @ Tuguegarao City, PH (April 2012)


I will be very sad to wake up to a day with no trees left.
Honoring one of my favorite poems as a kid.
Honoring Joyce Kilmer.
Honoring individuals who take care of trees and/or will take care of them.
To Sally Torreliza-Derecho who nominated me in the Nature Photo Challenge, I may have not followed the chain but it doesn’t make me any less of a nature advocate. Thanks for the nomination. Your photo entries are beautiful!

To all, next time you see a tree, pay attention. Love it and it will love you back selflessly.

Thank you for reading my post. Please leave a reply.
