“The Tree” poem is included in a new textbook offered by Belgian publisher VAN IN. The song is included on a companion CD along with tracks by Bruce Springsteen, Michelle Shocked and others.
The poem was chosen by students of New Albany [OH] Middle & High School and engraved on a plaque set at the base of a tree planted in front of the school to commemorate the fallen heroes of 9/11.
The poem is being used by the North Carolina Dept. of Education in its 2012 reading assessments.
