I Shall Never See

100 words for March


A long journey
Joyce Kilmer Park in the Bronx
To his home in New Brunswick, New Jersey
Walking the way
A pilgrim’s quest
I come
Gateway to his mansion
Behind and above
An enormous red oak
Towering
God
I marvel
The one tree
I pass the gate
Go back
Wrap my arms as far as I can
Around the massive trunk
Absorb the energy
Walk about it
Carefully seeking
If perhaps
Carved in the ancient bark
God made this tree and inspired my poem
Joyce Kilmer
So many millions know your words
I find those words
I shall never see
