    My mother used to sing the sing from Joyce Kilmer's Trees, That was almost 70 years ago. With the windows open in summer, her voice carried throughout our yard. It was a happy time, one in which i go back to many times. Thank You!

    Kilmer is considered among the last of the Romantic era poets because his verse is conservative and traditional in style and does not break any of the formal rules of poetics—a style often criticized today for being too sentimental to be taken seriously

Best Poem of Joyce Kilmer

The House With Nobody In It

Whenever I walk to Suffern along the Erie track

I never have seen a haunted house, but I hear there are such things;
That they hold the talk of spirits, their mirth and sorrowings.
I know this house isn't haunted, and I wish it were, I do;
For it wouldn't be so lonely if it had a ghost or two.

This house on the road to Suffern needs a dozen panes of ...

(For Aline)

From what old ballad, or from what rich frame
Did you descend to glorify the earth?
Was it from Chaucer's singing book you came?
Or did Watteau's small brushes give you birth?

Nothing so exquisite as that slight hand
Could Raphael or Leonardo trace.
