The Winter Tree

"They say its petals fall to remind us of winters past."
"I don't want to remember them."
"No?"
"No. What's so special about winter, anyway?"
"Its beauty."
"Petals are more beautiful than snow."
"Are they?"
"Snow's cold."
"And if the petals fell early whilst winter still nipped at your cheeks? How would you know the difference?"
"I'm not sure."
"You wouldn't. This is how it is to stand beneath the Winter Tree whose petals tumble as constant snow."
"The Winter Tree does sound magical, I suppose."
"More so with age, my young friend. More so with age."
