howdy to all, i'm a 66 year ole guy that is disable.
love to buy and trade guns..
Rather than live in the Phoenix area as I do, I'd certainly trade it to live in a tree
any day of the week and twice on Sundays! A fellow with the name Joyce.....
Joyce Kilmer ...wrote a poem about his love of trees...I've know that poem since
an Iowa farm boy of 14 when I'd chop down white oak trees and make fence posts
of them...here almost 70 years later, wonder if there are any remaining on that
old homestead...Welcome Sir...you will enjoy the fine company of those who visit
while aiding and assisting each other...Chief

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

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the sweet earth’s flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

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.
