Mem'ries - Piny Tree Smelling Mem'ries of the Tree-t That Was*

Mem'ries light the corner of my cud
Piny tree smelling mem'ries of the Tree-t that was






Scattered needles of the branches we left behind
Burps we passed at one another for the Tree-t that was






Can it be that it was all so green and full then
Or has time removed every branch
If we had the chance to eat it all again, tell me would we, 
could we


See me singing?




Mem'ries may be beautiful and yet
What's too empty to remember, we simply chew and forget
So it's the needles we'll remember
Whenever we remember the Tree-t that was






The Tree-t that was.*


This is the state of the Tree-t one week later. 
Obviously we have been enjoying it....

  9. You goats sure did a good job demolishing that tree. Bet it was so tasty. Our goat loves to chew on things like trees. She even taught the donkeys to do that. Take care and stay warm.

  13. Thank you, Pricilla, you have now officially ruined that song for me, but they were such delightful verses, I can't stay maaaad at you! If I had but known how much you love piney trees, I would have had all my friends send you theirs. Enjoy the snow. It will be gone before long and you'll be wondering why you're so hot... Come visit when you can.
