A teaser ....

Trees

I THINK that I shall never see 

A poem 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. 


- Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918 

                            
                                                                                            

We are back from the Hamptons a little tan-er, a little more relaxed, and very very happy! I will reveal the big surprise from over the weekend .... shortly!  .... and there will be pics! In the meantime enjoy the poem.
