Poetry? MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

"I think that I shall never see
A poem as lovely as a tree."
Now there's a poem as poems should be
All rhymed and timed ... pure poetry.

I can hardly write ...
     and barely rhyme
Too scared to sing ...
     I'd rather mime
Don't like to dance ...     
     Can't step in time
What's one to do with skills like mine?

But I can see and smell and feel
And how I love this earth so real.

So poems can be made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
