Trees by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree

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 robis 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

これは、教室に通って来てくれている小学4年生のAちゃんの夏休みの宿題

これを暗記してくるそうです。楽しそうですね!

    This rhymed verse is really beautiful.
    I sympathize the last line "But only God can make a tree"
    I wonder if I'll be able to learn this poem by heart.
