Melbourne Daily Photo

Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Scenic Sunday - The Tree

The tree on the Yarra
I love sitting under a tree and watching the world go by.

TREES

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. 1886–1918

What a lovely spot. I found a new tree for me to sit under today at a local park. The weather even cooperated

The tree acts as a great frame in this composition.

This is very well-composed photo, Blossomflowergirl! What a great tree. And the poem has always been a favorite...

Peaceful - warm and sunny with the tree arching over the river.
