What would it have cost him to have said "We grow on Life's tree as ephemeral flowers." ?

Ah... but don't you think that 'Death's tree' taps into the subconscious, with echoes of hangings, human sacrifices and the deaths of Odin and Christ? ("...Odin hangs from a tree as a sacrifice to himself has been suggested to reflect the crucifixion of Jesus, down to the detail of having his side pierced with a spear...").*

Dunno, you may be right (is the glass half-full or half-empty?). Might just be down to the weather, or chemicals in the brain :-)
