Once there was a tree...

An excerpt:

     Once there was a tree... and she loved a little boy.  And every day the boy would come and he would gather her leaves and make them into crowns and play king of the forest.

~ from The Giving Tree,
written by Shel Silverstein

This excerpt reminds me of the maple tree our family had in our backyard when I was growing up.  (The photo does, too.)  Oh, how I loved that tree... and I was convinced that she loved me back. :)
