to bloom,
my plum tree.

 The oak tree:
not interested
 in cherry blossoms.

Wishing you Good Day --

 His Bill an Auger is
His Head, a Cap and Frill
He laboreth at every Tree
A Worm, His utmost Goal.

Kiplings Vermont

 The summer like a rajah dies,
And every widowed tree
Kindles for Congregationalist eyes
An alien suttee.

by Anne Bradstreet


 HERE a pretty baby lies 
Sung asleep with lullabies: 
Pray be silent and not stir 
Th' easy earth that covers her.

Too intrinsic for Renown --
Laurel -- veil your deathless tree --
Him you chasten, that is He!

 I think that I shall never see
A billboard lovely as a tree
Indeed, unless the billboards fall
I'll never see a tree at all.

 She slept beneath a tree --
Remembered but by me.
I touched her Cradle mute -- She recognized the foot -- Put on her carmine suit And see!

The Learned Workman

 Ne'er does he taste the fruit of the tree that he raised with such trouble;
Nothing but taste e'er enjoys that which by learning is reared.

by Mother Goose

Oh, Dear!

Dear, dear! what can the matter be?
Two old women got up in an apple-tree;
One came down, and the other stayed till Saturday.

by Robert Frost

Dust of Snow

 The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

by Edward Lear

O was an orange


was an orange
So yellow and round:
When it fell off the tree,
It fell down to the ground.


Down to the ground!

by Edward Lear

Q was a Quince that hung


was a Quince that hung
Upon a garden tree; Papa he brought it with him home,
And ate it with his tea.

A Meditation In Time Of War

 For one throb of the artery,
While on that old grey stone I Sat
Under the old wind-broken tree,
I knew that One is animate,
Mankind inanimate phantasy.

by Edward Lear

There Was an Old Man in a Tree

 There was an Old Man in a tree,
Who was horribly bored by a bee.
When they said "Does it buzz?" He replied "Yes, it does! It's a regular brute of a bee!"

by Edward Lear

There was a young lady of Firle

There was a young lady of Firle,
Whose hair was addicted to curl;
It curled up a tree, and all over the sea,
That expansive young lady of Firle.

by Carl Sandburg


 A SWIRL in the air where your head was once, here.
You walked under this tree, spoke to a moon for me I might almost stand here and believe you alive.

by Edward Lear

N was a Nut that grew

High up upon a tree; Papa, who could not reach it, said,
"That's much too high for me!"

There was an Old Man of Dundee,
Who frequented the top of a tree;
When disturbed by the Crows, he abruptly arose,
And exclaimed, "I'll return to Dundee!"

One White Tree

 Tall ships and tall kings
Three times three.
What brought they from the foundered land Over the flowing sea? Seven stars and seven stones And one white tree.

To A Squirrel At Kyle-Na-No

 Come play with me;
Why should you run
Through the shaking tree
As though I'd a gun
To strike you dead?
When all I would do
Is to scratch your head
And let you go.

by Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady of Lucca

There was a Young Lady of Lucca,
Whose lovers completely forsook her;
She ran up a tree, and said "Fiddle-de-dee!"
Which embarrassed the people of Lucca.

by Omar Khayyam

Beloved, if thou a reverend Molla be,

Beloved, if thou a reverend Molla be,
Quit saintly show, and feigned austerity,
And quaff the wine that Murtaza purveys,
And sport with Houris 'neath some shady tree!
