 From “Trees” by Mary Gilmartin

What a great place to take a walk,

Underneath all the trees where I live.

Through the woods I gallop looking up at their branches,

Watching their leaves reach for the sky,

While the sun warms the ground.

From “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer

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

From “Birches” by Robert Frost

     Earth’s the right place for love:
I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.
I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree,
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven…

From “When Autumn Came” by Faiz Ahmed Faiz
translated by Naomi Lazard

Give some tree the gift of green again.
Let one bird sing.
