There, through the broken branches, go The ravens of unresting thought; Flying, crying, to and fro, Cruel claw and hungry throat, Or else they stand and sniff the wind, And shake their ragged wings; alas!

Poems about Trees

tree poem

Henry David Thoreau Walk tall as the trees, live strong as the mountains, be gentle as the spring winds, keep the warmth of the summer sun in your heart and the great spirit will always be with you. To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain; To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon; To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves; To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching. Poems are nought but warmed-up breeze. Deep in the earth today, Safely the roots we lay, Tree of our love; Grow thou and flourish long! We rejoice in the knowledge that God created them both.

Poems About Trees

tree poem

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. If I transport a sapling oak To rear its mighty head Twill make for them a childhood shrine, That will not soon decay. And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow. Powell Something seems to have gnawed that walnut leaf. I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses.
