when i was in elementary school, we had to write a poem about xmas trees. i have the most distinct memory of my mother taking me to a lot to wander around to get inspired. this was back in the late 60's and green was the minority. they were all flocked every color imaginable!
i can remember the beginning of the poem....
coming home from school yesterday
i saw a christmas tree display.
whites, oranges, yellows too
and standing alone was a tall skinny blue.
i think i was 10 or 11. but i can soooo see, in my minds eye, that tree lot and all the colors. every color imaginable.
but good old live green makes me happy!
