    Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918

    I THINK that I shall never see
    A poem lovely as a tree.

    A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
    Against the sweet earth's 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.

  9. I think that I shall never see
    A WalMart lovely as a tree.
    Indeed, unless the WalMarts fall
    I'll never see a tree at all.

    wonder in the morning

    By Anonymous
    Woke early one morning,
    the earth lay cool and still,
    when suddenly a tiny bird,
    perched on my window sill,
    it sang a song so lovely,
    so carefree and so gay,
    that slowly all my troubles,
    began to slip away,
    it sang of far off places,
    of laughter and of fun,
    it seemed his very song,
    brought out the morning sun,
    I pulled back the covers,
    and crept slowly out of bed,
    and gently shut the window,
    and crushed his freaking head,
    I'm not a morning person
