We visited the Joyce Kilmer National Forest near Robbinsville, NC. Joyce Kilmer is known for his poem - TREES - and was also a WWI veteran. The forest is layered with huge Tulip Poplars, waterfalls, streams, caves and beautiful meandering paths. Take a look....
by: 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 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.
"Trees" was originally published in Trees and Other Poems. Joyce Kilmer. New York: George H. Doran Company, 1914.
