So you think you have seen metal in yard trees ?
« on: June 21, 2007, 12:24:02 PM »
I saw this link on another wood board, some of you might have already seen it too. http://www.kmov.com/localnews/stories/kmov_localnews_070620_treebike.20fd7308.html a bicycle grown into a tree.

 

There are several more pictures on the link. If someone thinks they need to remove the one I put in the post, have at it.

Aside from the picture being amusing, it also makes one think about the story behind it as well. Someone leaned that bicycle against the tree, and never came back, I wonder why.

I know, I know............................

Little Boy Blue
by Eugene Field (1850-1895)

The little toy dog is covered with dust,
   But sturdy and stanch he stands;
And the little toy soldier is red with rust,
   And his musket moulds in his hands.
Time was when the little toy dog was new,
   And the soldier was passing fair;
And that was the time when our Little Boy Blue
   Kissed them and put them there.

"Now, don't you go till I come," he said,
   "And don't you make any noise!"
So, toddling off to his trundle-bed,
   He dreamt of the pretty toys;
And, as he was dreaming, an angel song
   Awakened our Little Boy Blue---
Oh! the years are many, the years are long,
   But the little toy friends are true!

Ay, faithful to Little Boy Blue they stand,
   Each in the same old place---
Awaiting the touch of a little hand,
   The smile of a little face;
And they wonder, as waiting the long years through
   In the dust of that little chair,
What has become of our Little Boy Blue,
   Since he kissed them and put them there.
Here's to us and those like us; DanG few of us left!

I'd be more worried about the 75 year old 8 year old in the middle of that beech. ;)
