As linguistics are my key to knowledge, this poem that's haunted me for so
many years has deep meaning
Trees are people- that's where the 'family tree'
comes from. Sometimes people misconstrue metaling
into other peoples lives with words that Ernest Hemmingway put it best. If
good intentional angels
try to help you, just pour it down the sink.

This poem touches my heart so much. It reminds me of my mother who taught
me this when I was a child. As I am already a mother, I also teach this to
my child.

I first heard this poem sung in a commercial years ago when I was 5. I had
never forgoten the first lines of this poem. I came across this poem again
in highschool on a computer activity. The next time I saw this on my way
home to Calamba, it was posted line per line along the with the trees on
the highway.
I love this poem, I forget from time to time but every time i remember it
just overwhelms me.
This is one of the most remarkable poem's ever. It'll always remind me of
going home to Calamba!

I learned this poem in grade school. "Trees" on its own is beautiful, we
can all appreciate its imagery. Knowing that its author was killed in
combat makes the poem and its beauty, "tragically" beautiful, yet sad with
the loss of the author's life. It makes me sad to think of how wonderful
our world would be if such people did not die young, but lived their full
lives.

I remember learning this poem in school when I was very young. It was such
a touching poem that I never forgot it. I remember reciting the lines from
this poem; it seemed to make everything alright and brought such a warmth
to my heart and tears to my eyes. We are the lucky ones to have such
beautiful creations, which God created for us to enjoy. I have been
thinking about this poem for a long time and I finally found it. Now I can
enjoy it and teach my children and grandchildren what love is.

Thank you,

I have an enormous Eastern Cottonwood tree in my yard and my elderly
neighbor hates it...he complains about the mess it makes and is constantly
telling me to have it removed...it's the most amazing tree and I love
it...one day I took a picture of the tree and made it a bit transparent and
imposed this poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer over it and am contemplating
giving it to my neighbor...it may not help but I feel the need to share
this poem with my neighbor...take a look...

We all learnt this "off by heart", as we said then, when I was a kid. So
did all the other kids my age in Australia. It's one of the few poems that
I can still recite. Thank you for including it here.

I loved this poem, like most, since childhood. It was Alfalfa recitation
on The Little Rascals that did it for me. My father also would recite this
to my siblings and me.
