Trivia: “I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as” what?

A swan
A tree
The sea
The snow

Correct Answer: A tree

So why is this answer correct? : Joyce Kilmer’s claim to fame is his short poem, “Trees,” which was published in his 1914 collection “Trees and Other Poems.” The poem is essentially a tribute to the magnificence of nature, with Kilmer marveling at the life of a tree, weathering season after season. His final stanza is well-remembered, “Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree,” hinting that he feels inferior to nature.
