If you were a tree
what kind would you be?

I think I would be one of these.

David was an olive tree
The Lover was an apple tree
The righteous man is a well watered tree

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree...
Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree.

  1. Ahhh....makes me think of a poem I always used in the classroom....Trees by Harry Behn (don't remember if that's the way he spelled his name)...Trees are the kindest things I know, they do no harm, they simply grow....

    We drove to Sedona on a free day (beautiful colored rocks I'll have to post later...saw a couple of trees turning colors on the way. My glimpse of fall.
