The Elm Tree

The Elm Tree

From about 15 yards away, I first saw the rough bark and thought it looked like an elm tree. I felt the rough leaf and turned it over to see the texture of the underside. Yes. An elm. Not the very same variety as the ancient ones, but nice to see and feel and even smell one again. You don't forget when your childhood sandbox was at the foot of a huge elm tree. It was probably the first tree whose name I learned.
