Kilmer's Poem 'Trees'

I think that there shall never ever be,

Another poem as lovely as the poem "Trees"

Joyce Kilmer to me is the bards' epitome,

Since his simple verse soothes like an August breeze!

    I had to look up this poem, for I haven't heard of it before. I am impressed and and can see now how you were inspired by it! Poetry has much to do with observation... but we can't create things like God. There is much beauty in this short little piece... very nicely put together!

    When I read your poem Bob, I thought ...... Imagine if everyone in the P-Soup hung up all our poems in a tree ....... almost like a decorated Christmas tree, it would host an "all year three "/" whole worlds tree ". - Beautiful poem Bob, wish you good luck in the contest. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
