I Think That I Shall...

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;
