I thought that I would never see
A phobia about a tree.
A tree which lives in forests (hylophobia) green
Upon whose bosom snow (leukophobia: fear of white) has lain.
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins (ornithophobia) in her hair.
Phobias are made for fools like me
But only God (theophobia)can make a tree.
Apologies to Joyce Kilmer author of the famous poem “Trees.”
