Happy 50th birthday to

Barbara H. Zurrer Brandreth

Born June 1957
Add to this grove

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.

-Joyce Kilmer

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,
