    1. I think that I shall never seeA poem lovely as a tree.A tree whose hungry mouth is pressedAgainst the earth s sweet flowing breast A tree that looks at God all dayAnd lifts her leafy arms to pray A tree that may in summer wearA 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 This poem in it s beautiful simplicity is very close to Emily Dickinson in style and innocence The mystical ecology almost [...]

    2. The reason why I read this book was that I came across this quote I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree.The quote was credited to Joyce Kilmer and came from Trees Other Poems, and I thought it was the whole poem My first reaction was that this was a really great one Of course I was mistaken This was just the beginning of the poem, the rest goes like this A tree whose hungry mouth is pressedAgainst the earth s sweet flowing breast A tree that looks at God all dayAnd lifts her lea [...]

    3. This cheerful collection of poetry is rhyming, and it sounds right all the way through.The Apartment HouseSevere against the pleasant arc of skyThe great stone box is cruelly displayed.The street becomes dreary from its shade,And vagrant breezes touch its walls and die.Here sullen consist in their chains might lie,Or slaves toil dumbly at some dreary trade.How worse than folly is their labor madeWho cleft the rocks that this might rise on high Mount HouvenkopfSerene he stands, with mist serenel [...]

    4. My edition is not listed It is the 1914 hardcover with dust jacket I got it from a used book bin, an found inside An old newspaper clipping about the death of the NJ oak that inspired the Trees poem, an embroidered book mark about the Golden Rule, an old postcard thanking a Barnville man for his donation to Boy s Town I love the stuff I find inside used books.

    5. Loved Trees , To My Mother and The House with Nobody in It can read those poems thousand times but still wouldn t get enough of it

    6. Joyce Kilmer is one of those poets who manage to move your heart while getting you to scramble to the nearest dictionary or laptop to look up the meaning of a couple of infuriatingly frustrating words Contrary to everyone else whose read his simply enchanting works Trees does not happen to be my favourite poem Main Street does I just felt it spoke out to me His love for the Main Street was so prominent, so lovely in his personification that I too wanted to visit it and see firsthand it s incomp [...]

    7. Strong poetry with a very religious basis The poetry is fun to read, even so when read aloud I really liked Memorial Day, The Twelve Forty Five, and The House with Nobody in It I found the book in our school library It was printed in 1914 and found its way into the library in 1947 I am really glad this little gem was still available in print.

    8. I say currently reading because the only poem of his that I ve had the pleasure of reading is Trees If you have a chance to look it up you should It is a beautiful poem.

    9. These poems were much modern than I had expected, but none of them particularly spoke to me or stood out much I have mixed feelings on this collection.
