You are a big tree. You carry a lot of nature and hold baby birds. You look like a big giraffe because you have a long and tall trunk. I’m tall, too. Your leaves look like hair and your branches look like my arms. When I touch you, you feel a little rough.
Your colors are pink, yellow, and white. I like your name, “snow” with a “y” at the end. I name you that because you remind me of winter, and in the winter your leaves fall down, and they look like falling snow. In the spring when you come back, you will be the same, won’t you, Snowy?
