I was also looking for the writer of "trees". I believe it was Joyce Kilmer. There was a song written "Trees" It starts Off Like This: " I think that I shall never see a poem lovley as a tree. A tree that looks at God all day and lifts her leafy arms to pray. ( I can't think of the rest of it) But I remember th song whe I was A kid. I think I have heard the opera Singer Robert Merrill sing it a long while back.Good luck in finding more about it. I loved that song too. Joseph

I know it's been a couple of years since this question posted, but I was also looking for the song entitled "Trees".  This too is my mother's favorite song from her childhood.  "Trees" for my mother is a poem written by Joyce Kilmer in 1922 that she sang as a child in school. #The original inquirer's mother and my mother are about the same age.#  I've listed it below for your reference.  I hope this helps.





         Joyce Kilmer. 18861918





         119. 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,

      5       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.

     10       Poems are made by fools like me,

         But only God can make a tree.
