The Tree

This tree lives in my front yard. It is small and misshapen and looks completely ordinary all year. No - it is less than ordinary. It is scrawny and it's branches hang over the walkway. And every spring Tom tries to convince me that it needs to go. And every spring I inform him that the tree stays. Here is the reason why - because for a few short days every fall this tree turns brilliantly red. It practically glows. Come on! Isn't that reason enough to keep it??
