JOYCE KILMER (ALFRED JOYCE KILMER)
American poet, journalist and soldier
(1886 - 1918)

I think that I shall never see
  A poem as lovely as a tree.
    . . . .
      Poems are made by fools like me,
        But only God can make a tree.
      - [Trees]

God be thanked for the Milky Way that runs across the sky.
  That's the path that my feet would tread whenever I have to die.
    Some folks fall it a Silver Sword, and some a Pearly Crown,
      But the only thing I think it is, is Main Street, Heaventown.
      - Main Street [Stars]

In a wood they call the Rouge Bouquet,
  There is a new-made grave today,
    Built by never a spade nor pick,
      Yet covered with earth ten meteres thick.
        There lie many fighting men.
          Dead in their youthful prime.
      - Rouge Bouquet [Soldiers]

I think that I shall never scan
  A tree as lovely as a man.
    . . . .
      A tree depicts divinest plan,
        But God himself lives in a man.
      - Trees [Trees]
