"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 breasts;

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 the rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree."

-by Alfred Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)

It looks great Dad! I love the fine little details that accentuate the image.

OK, that's as technical as I can get. The poem didn't hit me that hard, but placed alongside (or under, in this case) your drawing, it brings a lot more to the words.
