Trees

Joyce Kilmer wrote a well-know poem that began
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.”

Ogden Nash, the US poet, wrote a parody on this
I think that I shall never see
a billboard lovely as a tree.
Perhaps, unless the billboards fall,
I’ll never see a tree at all.”

Visual pollution is a major hazard in our cities and along our roadways.  Not just the ugliness, but the barriers it raises between us and the enjoyment of nature.
