WHAT IS THE POET TREE? A piece of DRIFTWOOD representing the JOURNEY OF LIFE with the letters P O E T T R E E displayed in a tree on the school campus. WIND CHIMES hung from the tree to encourage the young poets to SHARE THE SONG IN THEIR HEARTS. The POET TREE MAILBOX allows young poets to share their song letting the soul flow freely and EASE THE ALONENESS we all share.
