"Trees" by Joyce Kilmer
'Trees' poem by Joyce Kilmer, illustrated by Miriam A. Kilmer
 
Signed Archival Giclée Print © 2003 Miriam A. Kilmer order

 
Trees
 
(For Mrs. Henry Mills Alden)
 
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
 
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet 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.
~ Joyce Kilmer

N)-Trees1A   7x5 open edition note card (signed in archival silver ink) with acid-free envelope.
Trees1A is a slightly larger image with narrow, even black borders; it makes a 4.7x5 with narrow white borders on the sides. Signed in archival silver ink. Does not fit standard 7x5 mat or frame. Poem is easier to read for those of us with imperfect vision.
  ~ $5.00
N)-Trees1B   7x5 open edition note card (signed in archival silver ink) with acid-free envelope.
The image is slightly smaller than the "Trees1A print, with wider black borders; this makes it suitable for framing using mats or frames for 7x5 prints. The poem is clearly legible, but might be more difficult for those with failing eyesight.
