I think that I shall never see . . . .

a poem lovely as a tree.

I've been working on Christmas cards again today. . . .and for some reason, my creative energy led me toward TREES.

Today is not the first time that this subject (trees) has dominated my creative efforts. After all, I LOVE trees! I can't imagine a view (either near OR distant) without trees.

So now, after a day of crafting with trees in mind, I thought I would dedicate my Blog post to . . . . . . . yes, you guessed it . . .TREES.

I'm a bit short of words myself at the moment (yes, I KNOW . . .that's hard to believe!)

Given that, let me respectfully post the words of the American poet Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918), from a poem that many of you will recoginize . . . . . .

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

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed

Against the sweet earth's flowing breast.

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair.

Upon whose bosom snow has lain,

Who intimately lives with rain

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree. "

Well, as for me. . . .
I'm afraid that I can't compose a wonderful timeless poem, like Joyce Kilmer.

NOR can I create REAL trees . . . .

But, at the very least, I guess what I CAN do is:

LOVE Trees, and . . . . . BE INSPIRED by Trees.

(Some of these card photos posted are new, some older . . . .I guess my card creations have been inspired by trees for quite some time now!)
