Librarian Paul Ruschmann has curated a colorful and eclectic book display on Trees. The display includes titles on botany, global warming, gardening, deforestation, tree-watching (like bird-watching), literature, and children’s books on the theme. The display is a fun, interdisciplinary lens on an everyday object. Come on into the Library and take a look!
by Joyce Kilmer
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
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.
