Alfred Joyce Kilmer
b. 12-6-1886; Brunswick, NJ
d. 7-30-1918; near Seringes-et-Nesles, France

Joyce Kilmer was a journalist, poet, literary critic, lecturer, and editor whose works celebrated the common beauty of the natural world as well as his Catholic faith. Kilmer, remembered most for a short poem entitled “Trees” (1913), served as a sergeant in 165th US Infantry Regiment and died at the World War I Second Battle of the Marne.

FYI - Kilmer's father was a chemist who developed baby powder for the Johnson & Johnson Co.


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.

The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables,
Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -
Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.”

Rudyard Kipling, poet and novelist, was awarded the 1907 Nobel Prize for Literature “in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration which characterize the creations of this world-famous author.”

Rudyard Kipling quotes ~
• “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.”
• “Everyone is more or less mad on one point.”
• “Gardens are not made by singing “Oh, how beautiful,” and sitting in the shade.”
• “The Cat. He walked by himself, and all places were alike to him.”
• “Far-called our navies melt away —
On dune and headland sinks the fire —
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget — lest we forget!” ~ 3rd stanza Recessional
