This could be painful

My wife said to me,I had to prune my tree But I didn't know what to do. All I could imagine with every cut, Was the pain it was going through. I had to give it some water, I had to replace the sap. I needed to get some rain water Not the stuff out of the tap. My wife said it looked ten years younger, She said it's a really nice tree. I am going to hide the cutters, In case she does it to me. At last my tree is all finished It's had its cut and it's trim. For me to look ten years younger, I would have to spend ten years at the gym.

Like the way you thought of the tree as having feelings and the care you gave it after the pruning, that alone says so much, Emilia : )
