Picking Out A Tree

Christmas trees are such a tease,

Choosing one’s a chore;

There’s Fraser fir, blue spruce, Scotch pine

And many, many more.

But by the time we take one home

All of us agree,

It’s not a pine or fancy spruce--

It’s now a Christmas tree!

Yes, trees can tease you! We had quite the struggle getting our blue spruce to stand, but it's our Christmas tree! Love your poems. Thanks!
