Good Bye to the Monterey Square Magnolia!

September 6th, 2012 by Heather Gordon

Last week we said our goodbyes, signed the guestbook and read Joyce Kilmer’s poem, Trees:

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.
