Tree Planting Ceremony

The beautiful tree donated to the Ladies club was planted recently in the grounds of St Asicus Church by the indomitable Pauline Gibbons ably assisted by Fr Earley himself. There was a great number of ladies in attendance and to conclude a few prayers were The Treesaid followed by a lovely rendition of the poem “the tree” read by Fr Earley.

Joyce Kilmer 1886 – 1918

Inisboffin and tree planting 108

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 can make a tree.
