No poem can be "lovely as a tree"

in Ladies of Hivelast year

Have you ever read a poem as beautiful as a tree?


Joyce Kilmer wrote a poem in 1913, and he insisted that there cannot be anything that can match-up to the loveliness of a tree.


Trees gaze at the heavens night and day, and their branches and leaves seem to pray unceasingly.


It is intimate with the elements... the snow and rain. Birds build their nests in trees that are like crowns. And it nourishes itself by simply feeding from the earth!


No art that man makes can compare even the simple beauty of a tree! Joyce Kilmer says poetry is not able to capture the true beauty of nature. No poem can be “lovely as a tree.”


TREES
by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
a poem as lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
against the sweet earth's 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.

If you can pick a flower to show today, what would it be?


Aren't all flowers pretty?

I think that Joyce Kilmer said it best! Is there anything as lovely as a tree? On #TreeTuesday? I think not!

Unless it is in the beauty of a flower. #alwaysaflower

I picked roses today! They are pink and pretty and in abundance!

Happy Tuesday!

I learned that poem at 6 or 7 years old, and I never forgot it. When I become old and grey I would still remember that poem!
Ah... beautiful roses! Pink is my favorite color.

My Double Delight is taking a beating from the extreme heat... today it is going to be 115 degrees mid-day!
You are the first to come love, and I am humbled, @dswigle . I wish I didn't have to work!!!

I guess I have always loved trees...... The tree in your post just beckons young kids to climb....and Silvertop as well!😇

That's the first thing in my mind... I'd love the climb the tree. It's maneuvering the first steps, that is a challenge.
Have a great day, @silvertop !

TREES
by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
a poem as lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
against the sweet earth's 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.

😍💖 How beautiful @silversaver888, I had never read it. Thanks for sharing my friend. Beautiful day to you.🌳💕

Beautiful poem. We fools can make poems or write, but only God can make a poem as beautiful as a tree. And trees are beautiful, they give shelter, shade and food.

My Contractor just advised me that I need to cut back the branches of my tree to install a new line prior to the Breaker panel upgrade. Another $600, I can't find a poem to best describe how I feel.

Always, with love 🤗🌺❤️

Ah... you will be fine! We are always prepared for these things happening!
It was bound to happen one of these days. It's good it did when we are prepared.
Hugs an kisses, sis 🤗

Yes ! The flowers ARE pretty ! Such a deep velvety red.

I remember that poem from way back. Through time it has crossed my mind now and then, but only the first sentence. 😄

Trees are grand, that is for sure... and fascinating.
