When Rita’s Wax Myrtle tree leafed out this spring
She immediately set about expertly pruning it
As she does every spring.
She removed every twig of new growth
From the main branches of the tree.
It was as if she knew precisely how to trim a tree!
As She always does, she settled on her favorite branch
For a work break
Only when she finished trimming the tree
And was agreeable to come down for the ride home!
