Very Special Trees 
My Tree Live Oak Tree

My Tree

A scenic View of the Eastern Townships, Quebec, Canada
- my childhood days 

My Tree

There is a tree, now gnarled and bent 
Where my childhood's happiest hours were spent 

Within its leafy green embrace
I seemed to touch God's holy face
I roamed in summer, wild and free
And Climbed in childish ecstasy

Up to the tip-top branch so high
To see if I could reach the sky 
Then, heaven unreached, down, down I'd climb 
With solitary joy sublime

The tree I
may have climbed

The leaves touching the sky...

Now grown, I sometimes meditate
On how that tree has shaped my fate
Nearer to heaven my spirit grew
More than childish fancy knew!

Author - Billie Anne Clevenger

" The Tree "

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed

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.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Example of anthropomorphism:

Joyce Kilmer, American poet (1886-1918). Author of a widely known poem, The Tree (1913) that pays anthropomorphic tribute to trees. He equates the tree, animate object of nature, with a creation by God on equal standing with humans by anthropomorphizing its features (a hungry mouth, leafy arms, hair) and giving it human actions ( that looks at God, that prays). The poem’s simple and direct language invites frank admiration of the nobility of trees, and implies that they are a divine creation, greater than any creative act by a man.
