Three Quotes

  1. I think that I shall never see / A poem lovely as a tree.
  2. There is no place in which to hide / When Age comes seeking for his bride.
  3. The only reason a road is good as every wanderer knows / Is just because of the homes, the homes, the homes to which one goes.

Kilmer was an American writer and poet mainly remembered for a short poem titled “Trees”, which was published in the collection Trees and Other Poems in 1914.
