Poem: In appreciation of Joyce Kilmer , ‘Trees’

.

the Spanish moss shifted gently in the breeze
as though the tree was doing a striptease
the Creators handiwork, a perfect avian roost
in sympatico His universe was produced

his first name was Alfred and he honored the tree
Joyce is the the name given to a forest that is lovely to see
Kilmer was killed in World War One
his surviving daughter became a nun

a marvelous poet he died too young
his words to music have been sung
the poets beautiful tree is still God’s miracle
the glory of nature is truly empirical

more than a hundred year since he has passed
yet the message of his poems remains steadfast
one need not be a fan of poetry
to admire the beauty of a tree
