A DIFFERENT KIND OF BENCH-WARMER

Tree on Alum Creek Reservoir, Lewis Center, OH 43035

“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.”

— Joyce Kilmer
