Scarcley a Tree

April 5, 2011
How awkward the tree
Of ice and hail
Looks when brute winds come to play
For they rip away
Her lovely
Skirts of May
And leave instead
A somber mourning dress of gray
But hush!
Don't tell her that I said it
Just think of all the things she'd say
If she, the girl
And I,
The tree

Thanks!  We had a tree in our front yard and I always thought how odd it looked with all of its leaves gone, especially since it was the first on our street to lose its.
