Some to the holly hedge
  Nestling repair; and to the thicket some;
    Some to the rude protection of the thorn.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Spring
         (l. 634)

Welcome, ye shades! ye bowery Thickets hail!
  Ye lofty Pines! ye venerable Oaks!
    Ye Ashes wild, resounding o'er the steep!
      Delicious is your shelter to the soul.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Summer
         (l. 469)

Or ruminate in the contiguous shade.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Winter

Even trees do not die without a groan.
      - Henry David Thoreau

Sure thou did'st flourish once! and many springs,
  Many bright mornings, much dew, many showers,
    Passed o'er thy head; many light hearts and wings,
      Which now are dead, lodg'd in thy living bowers.
        And still a new succession sings and flies;
          Fresh groves grow up, and their green branches shoot
            Towards the old and still-enduring skies;
              While the low violet thrives at their root.
      - Henry Vaughan ("The Silurist"), The Timber

In such green palaces the first kings reign'd,
  Slept in their shades, and angels entertain'd;
    With such old counsellors they did advise,
      And by frequenting sacred groves grew wise.
      - Edmund Waller, On St. James' Park (l. 71)

A brotherhood of venerable Trees.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Sonnet composed at Castle -----

One impulse from a vernal wood
  May teach you more of a man,
    Of moral evil and of good,
      Than all the sages can.
      - William Wordsworth, The Tables Turned
