The swing in the tree

“The swing looks a little lonely on this Christmas Day.”

“Yes, and I’m afraid it won’t be there for long,” my brother said.

The old hickory has given shade for many years, and what little fruit it produces covers the ground every year. But, the years and weather have taken a toll. The bottom of the tree is hollowing out with rot. It’s just a matter of time before it comes down …  naturally or by the chain saw.

And the swing will be no more.
