Contemporary Monochrome – Trees
Trees, our favourite subject, and one we keep coming back to. We never tire of the beauty and majesty of these life giving subjects.
We think this poem by Joyce Kilmer sums it up rather well…..
Trees By Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet 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.
