Poem in Your Pocket Day.

In case you didn't know, April is National Poetry Month and today is Poem in your Pocket Day. Everyone is urged to carry a poem with you today and share it with friends or co-workers.
The following poem has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. Hope you all have a favorite poem, and I hope you will share it.

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

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
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
