The Lullabye Tree

So much research, so many deaths.  it was decided, the tree had to go.  It was decided no one should hear that song again.

It was also decided to send a team, between the eight or nine men, it was felt the job would be done.

The tree stood majestic and beautiful, it swayed and vibrated, it's leaves shook but, not one of them heard the song..

With a soft hiss, the tree gave up it's spiritual life.  It had done the work it was to do.  There had been a couple that had heard the song..

They would never forget it..

hush-a-bye
don't you cry
go to sleep my little baby

"One of the workers hummed a song as they brought the tree down, another listened, and asked what it was.. It was the Lullabye Song, in full."

hush-a-bye
don't you cry
go to sleep my little baby
when you wake
you'll have cake
and all the pretty little horses

"That was the end of the Lullabye Tree, in it's place a plaque dedicated to the ones that had passed away."

 

The End
