Oh hello world!

Hello world, how are you?

I’ve been keeping you from a distance

Been looking from the outside

Many beautiful things you offer

But some of my kind doesn’t bother.
They fight, they bicker

Back stab one another

It is no wonder

Why you cry floods of water

You try to cleanse yourself of us

Seeing we’re the impurities.
Hello world. Is it too late for me to say how lovely you are?

How precious you are

How grateful should all of us be.

Hello world…..

Trees

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
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.

 

Joyce Kilmer
