    You've got the idea Gwen, a hammock would be perfect today. Almost bathing suit weather. Best of luck in the contest! Luv, Lizzie

    One question my friend, wouldn't you need another tree to tie the hammock onto?! Ha ha, I know, you can tie it to anything you want! I just thought it funny and thought I'd ask you that question! I really enjoyed your write than I have read this evening! I love your poem a lot Gwendolen! Great Work!! PS I think I missed a key part of this poem...there WILL BE another tree coming up, so there will be two trees eventually. Duh, I think I got it now! Sorry, I guess the humor was in error :(

    Gwen, I really like this one, the way you describe the scene for us to imagine another tree will be sprouting up for that yew to share a hammock with. Awesome.
