Poems about Trees

 

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

From "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer

     Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.
I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree,
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven...

From "Birches" by Robert Frost

Give some tree the gift of green again.
Let one bird sing.

From "When Autumn Came" by Faiz Ahmed Faiz
     translated by Naomi Lazard
