Underneath the poet tree
Come and rest a while with me,
And watch the way the world-web weaves
Between the shady story leaves.
The branches of the poet tree
Reach from the mountain to the sea.
So come and dream, or come and climb.
Just don't get hit by falling rhymes.
Trees are a work of art aren't they? Across all the genres. Painting, sculpture, poetry...ReplyDelete
LOVE it! Shel Silverstein was very clever. I also like the leaf shadows on the tree trunk!ReplyDelete
A nice poem. Have a great day!ReplyDelete

I used a lot of Shel Silverstein with my middle school kids. Kids would actually have favorite poems by Silverstein.ReplyDelete
Hi Denise, such lovely words but with my luck the falling rhymes would be in a very heavy book. Regards JohnReplyDelete
great poem to go along with this shotReplyDelete
Oh yes! He's definitely one of my favorite poets!ReplyDelete
it's a cute poem but the image is awesome!!ReplyDelete
I don't think I could live without trees. Other landscapes have their own charms, perhaps, but to live on a bald prairie, or arctic tundra would not appeal to me. What is more pleasant than to seek the shade of a spreading tree on a hot summer's day?ReplyDelete
