Just going back in time thru my 1940's Prose & Poetry School book and
remembering how we had to memorize and then recite this beautiful poem. My
wife and I are both in our 80's and yet this poem still rings to us with
such grace. Doak Ramsey, Greeneville, TN

I first heard this poem in high school in New Brunswick, NJ, Kilmer's
hometown, in the early 60's. For some reason I always remembered the first
two lines and the last line! I had forgotten what beauty laid in between.

I was stunned by the beauty of this poem when I read it first time. This
certainly is, one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read.

So I was talking to my mom last night about this poetry project I have to
do for English... and my mom suggested I use one my my great, great
grandfather. At first I was sort of rude to her, having no idea that he
would be famous, and I told her that I would pass on the idea. After
telling me I was named after him, She told me to look Joyce Kilmer up on
google. Sure enough, I did. And sure, enough, I... Kimberly Joyce Devitt...
am the great great granddaughter of Joyce Kilmer. HOW COOL!

"Trees" by Joyce Kilmer has always been a favorite of mine since memorizing
it in grammer school in the early 1940's. I have also sung it as a vocal
solo several times. At that time I had little knowledge of the lasting
effects that the thoughts and maxims of the old poets would convey to me
throughout my life. We thought then that it was only a task to perform to
get a passing mark. Little did we know the lasting effect that the poet's
thoughts would have on our lives. While reading poetry is not my favorite
pastime, the poems that we memorized in our youth have been a lasting
