I think that I shall never see
A poem as 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.
Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.- Abraham Lincoln
He who plants a tree plants hope.- Lucy Larcom
Happy birthday from Sam
From Margaret, in gratitude for Barbara’s friendship:
There’s nothing that keeps its youth, So far as I know, but a tree and truth.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes
We love you – Max, Peter and Biskit
If what I say resonates with you, it is merely because we are both branches on the same tree.
– W. B . Yeats,
