Said the Lonely Christmas Tree
That brought the Merry Yule Tide,
"Didst thou wait 'til snowing came
To move me to the outside?
" 'Twas yesterday I stood adorned,
With bright lights and ornament.
And now my branches newly bare,
Are snow cold and rather bent.
"So, let's go back, what do you say,
To the way things used to be?
Dress me up with Easter Eggs,
Let me be your Easter Tree.
"I'll be warm and safe again,
Back inside that living room.
And you'll be envied by your friends,
When azaleas start to bloom."
