Trees by Sergeant Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see,
a poem as lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
against the earth’s sweet, flowing brest.

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.


AmblesideOnline.org – where do you start?

If you’re like me, the first visit to amblesideonline.org can seem a bit overwhelming. I’d like to pass on some great advice that I was given on how to approach the site.

Start with the “Frequently Asked Questions”.  You can read them through the link or download a printable pdf (note it is 23 pages long).  On the Ambleside website, they note these are “questions that were found on the Ambleside Online email list to be most commonly asked by list members. Information from nearly two years of list archives has been collected and compiled here; we encourage you to read this page in its entirety – the chances are good that your question has already been answered here!”

I hope you find this recommendation helpful.  It was a blessing to me.

God Bless you on your Walk!
