Marcia's Trees

As I look out at the many trees we see as we travel, I see life, death, beauty....even among the old trees.  I truly see the works of God .  ~Marcia  

The oaks and the pines, and their brethren of the wood, have seen so many suns rise and set, so many seasons come and go, and so many generations pass into silence, that we may well wonder what "the story of the trees" would be to us if they had tongues to tell it, or we ears fine enough to understand.   ~Author Unknown

Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.  ~John Muir

The tree is more than first a seed, then a stem, 
then a living trunk, and then dead timber.  
The tree is a slow, enduring force straining to win the sky.  
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Trees are much like human beings and enjoy each other's company.  
Only a few love to be alone.  ~Jens Jensen

 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.
~Joyce Kilmer

 Why are there trees I never walk under
But large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?
~Walt Whitman

  I hear the wind among the trees
Playing the celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There is always Music amongst the trees in the Garden, 
but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.  ~Minnie Aumonier

 Trees are your best antiques.  ~Alexander Smith

From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity.  
~Edvard Munch

The trees are God's great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.
~Leonora Speyer

The groves were God's first temples.  ~William Cullen Bryant

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson 

 God pours life into death and death into life without a drop being spilled.  
~Author Unknown

 Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.
~Kahlil Gibran
