I have a friend. My friend's name is Joy.Who is Joy you ask? Joy is a tree.
Spring, Summer, autumn and winter, Whenever the season, she brings me joy. That is why I named her Joy.
Joy stays and watches over me. Joy does not move but she has fun with me.
Joy has a secret pocket. Joy helps to hide the acorns for the squirrels.
Joy has many friends. Ants, squirrels and birds all come to play with her. Joy is fashionable.
She has a cool light green outfit and decorative slections of beautiful apple tree blossoms in her hair when Spring comes.
She has a dark green dress in the summer and with it she makes a relaxing waving shadow.
In Autumn, she changes to wear a beautiful dress with variety of colors as red, yellow, and orange.
And when winter comes, she makes me laugh with a naked brown figure. One day when the snowstorm came,
I was so worried that Joy would be cold. The next morning, I rushed to the park in front of my house with my mom to meet Joy. Joy smiled and greeted me with a shiny white dress from her head to toe.
Joy standing in a shite tranquility was so beautiful. I thought Joy was like a princess in the snow.
Joy surprises me with new looks every time, and I like Joy so much.
