I believe that you are referring to Joyce Kilmer's appropriately titled poem "Trees". You may find it at both reference 1 and 2 (see the bottom of the answer for references). Let me know if this is the poem that you are referring to.

Ogden Nash has a hilarious parody of this.

Just for fun -- Columbia University's Philolexian Society has an annual event called the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Bad Poetry Contest. It's in NYC, most likely some time in November. Their site doesn't list the exact date for this year's event, but here are two links that might shed some light: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/philo/ http://www.metatronics.net/lit/kilmer.html /ephraim
