So Smooth ~ 1955
 
Trees  ~ unreleased session recording
 
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!
 
( A tree that may in summer wear,
a nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain,
the lovely winter's snow,
who intimately lives with rain,
. . . who lives with rain! )
 
Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree!
