I love sitting here. You are sheltering me from the spring rain today.
In summer, you shade me from the sun. I brought friends here for a picnic last year, remember?
As a kid, I climbed you. I fell once and broke my arm, didn’t I?
In autumn, you’ll roll out a golden carpet and in winter you’ll stand naked and proud you old show off!
My first love and I carved our initials in your bark. Look, they’re still there!
You were there for those before me; you’ll be there for those that follow.
But today it’s me you shelter.
Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Liz Young for the photo.
Prod Froggie to join in the fun.
