WESTPORT - Dozens, perhaps hundreds of poets have immortalized trees in their verses; Robert Frost in "Birches" and "The Sound of Trees," and then there is "Winter Trees" by Sylvia Plath, and "Loveliest of Trees" by A. E. Housman, to name just a few. Perhaps the most well-known line in tree poetry is the opening of a Joyce Kilmer poem. He wrote: "I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree."
The architect and builder of the European-style contemporary house at 10 River Lane, Westport paid homage to trees, whether they intended to or not. And their architectural and construction work is as poetic as Kilmer's and Frost's beautiful words.
