Artist's Description

Trees" is a lyric poem by American poet Joyce Kilmer, written in February 1913. First published in Poetry: A Magazine of Verse that August, it was included in Kilmer’s 1914 collection Trees and Other Poems.

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.

This young tree is situated in the middle of a long sloping hill in Bristol, UK.
Near the top are some benches where people stop to eat lunch and sometimes feed the squirrels. Dogs on their walks chase the squirrels, who then run up the branches of this tree. Ravens often sit on top and watch the show.

Not sure what tree this is..the leaves are large and it may be sycamore…please confirm if you know for certain.
