The lush green leaves had gone to yellow.
Mired in self pity Tree cried, "Laugh, jump in my leaves! Look at me! I am bald!"

LOL Funny. Poor bald tree!

Hang in there, Tree. I do believe there's light at the end of your balding tunnel, because rumor has it Howie Mandel was once a molting tree. And, yeah, look at him now! He's a BIG honcho on America's Got Talent and is in rolling in the good leave$: the green kind!

Poor tree! Need not feel jealous. Share in the joy of the kids, and wait till spring comes around. Fun to read. Thanks, Pooch!

The tree has the right attitude--When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Good one, Pooch!

Oh poor tree, at least it managed to see the bright side!

In all these years (and there have been a few of them) I've never thought about autumn from the tree's point of view. How remiss of me, how insightful of you. Well done!

Poor tree. I guess it forgets that this is an annual thing of going naked for the winter. :)
