Tree Portraits, The Malevolent Elm

This is one of a set of twelve cards.
Each card gives information about the tree, but it does more than that, it tells the story of the tree; it's uses it's folklore, and untimately, it's character.

I likes to be left alone. The axe I hate and not easy split am I. If kings and realms need defence, a longbow I will spare you ; though more reluctantly than that old lapdog Yew. On the hearth, I burns like churchyard mould - even my very flames are cold. I doesn't mind the wet so's they use me for ships' keels and the gates of locks. But most likely, you will know me longest when your eyes are closed – it's me that's first choice for a coffin. Sometimes I'll fill the coffin meself; that's why they's call me "the widow maker". You heard them? Sometimes, when the mood's upon me, I might drop a branch. Crack! Like a spoon upon an egg.
