Tree poem in English
I think I’ll never see
A poem is lovely as a tree.
One tree per hungry face
In front of the sweet flowing breast of the earth;
A tree that looks at God all day long,
And raises her leafy hands to pray;
A tree that can wear in summer
The robbers build a nest in his hair;
On top of the tree is a layer of ice
Which intensifies with rainfall.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
