But Only God (and Craig Venter) Can Make a Tree

Joyce Kilmer. 1886–1918










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,

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 (and Craig Venter) can make a tree.



Check out my new video about Craig Venter’s manufacture of the first synthetic life and the impact it should have on religious belief.
