Ode to my Tree…..also known as I’ve got the blues because the lightening missed my tree

Oh tree oh tree oh scraggly elm tree.
Oh why oh why do you do this to me?
You don’t even live inside my yard
Yet you make me work oh so hard

Oh tree oh tree oh tree oh tree
All day I am forced to sweep your debris
You hitch a ride on my Shaggy Pooch
I find you on the floor, on the couch, in my shoes

You’re just trying to procreate
Soon I know you will abate
Summer will come, your dots will desist
I assure you Elm, they will not be missed
                                                               

This has been an Ode to my neighbor’s Elm Tree. Every spring it attempts to create baby elms all over my patio. It is persistent and messy. If I were a dog, I’d have a completely different perspective.

I am sharing this post at Second Chance Sunday, over at Mom’s Who Write and Blog. Some of my favorite people. Come on in! The water’s fine!

  1. My mom has those little dots! They are impossible, almost like a locust swarm or something! I never knew a tree could be so annoying.

    1. Totally! I can’t believe it either, and it’s not even my tree! But from mid-May to the end of June….it makes my patio almost impossible to use!
