Do you know if there is any source that might still have the music for
"Trees"? I would love to be able to get a copy for my granddaughter, a
piano student.

I first discovered this poem placed under a tree at Fort Kochi, Kerala,
Southern India. Being a tree lover myself it immediately caught my
attention,and I felt that I could never have said it as well myself. It's a
lovely poem and mirrors my feelings exactly. Thankyou,

This is one of my most favorite poems I've ever read. It made me think
differently then the way the way I used to think of trees before a tree was
just a tree. I think it would be lucky to be a tree having the birds
singing songs and nest of the branch's of the tree. When i read this poem
it relaxes me and makes me feel good

sorry about the mess up on the other comment!!

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
