'Kilmer discovered the famous oak tree located about one mile away from where we stand near the Labor Education Center,' Brudner said. 'It was not until he wrote the poem 'Trees' that he became a famous poet around the world.' The poem's iconic first couplet resounds: 'I think that I shall never see/A poem lovely as a tree.' "
