Biography of Joyce Kilmer

Joyce Kilmer

Joyce Kilmer (1886 - 1918)

Joyce Kilmer (December 6, 1886-July 30, 1918) was an American poet; his best-known work is "Trees". The poem is notable for its anthropomorphism: the tree in the poem presses its mouth to the earth's breast and looks at God and raises its leafy arms to pray. The poem was given a musical setting that was quite popular in the 1940s and 1950s.

Kilmer was killed in action by a sniper during World War I and is buried in the Oise-Aisne Cemetery, Fere-en-Tardenois, France.
