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.

That poem waas always one of my childhood favourites, and you found the perfect image for it.

who could ever deny this as a favorite poem? I like your tree too. It has simple humility, not over leafy or showy but missing a few branches and yet stalwart and nicely accompanied by the sheep within a canvas blue sky.
