The death of a tree
If you know anything about me you know I love trees. I have planted more trees in all my places than most ever owned. I even got my promised city tree a year before I moved. I visit it and my other trees often. Dad even had a favorite tree he loved in all seasons. It was on Charles Street,a lovely main road. That road was moms favorite road. His tree is also now gone as my front tree is.
Friday a freak fast moving storm with hail blew thru my street and got my tree. The tree landed in my front yard and damaged my fence. I mourn the tree more. Today they came and cut down the rest of the tree,it was too weak. Now I am sad and left with 2 large trees in my immediate yard. The fallen tree was outside my property and a street tree. Nothing is lovelier then streets covered in trees. Sadly my street has one less and it is my tree. Why my tree???
