//Draw an imaginary tree in your mind.
//You see a circle of yellow, which is the trunk.
//It has a creamy sapwood when you sawe it
//beneath it are orange roots.
//it starts with the roots, that are brawniest
//right beneath the trunk

//Out on the branches are berries,
//and they do falle again onto the roots.
//methinks some are even underground
//a gauze of ivy creeps up the trunk,
//which when cut the wood
//it tarnishes from yellow to orange.

//note that youtube does not allow lessthan or greaterthan
//symbols so you must repair them to make this code work.
