The Old Maple Tree in Winter

Old Maple Tree

The Old Maple Tree in Winter

By Richard Mabey Jr.

Its leaves have fallen to earth,

along with hundreds of maple seeds.

Gone now, Summer’s joy and mirth,

the heart and core of a child’s needs.


This tree holds such value and worth,

a child’s hunger for adventure it feeds.

Deep lies the truth, known from birth,

each skyward branch, to Heaven leads.
