This Poem has long been a favorite of mine. I first heard it in school,many
years ago. I feel a tree is one of The most beautiful of God's creations.
Each time I look up at one it makes me want to Praise Him.

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.
