Maple Syrup

Sugary water,



Slowly filling up the buckets.

Maple sap boiling,

Until at last,

Sugary syrup,

Slowly moving.


Dripping on your pancakes.

Maple sugar fills your mouth with joy.

Pure Vermont,

Pure love,

Pure maple syrup.

Maple is love because it’s made with teamwork,

Everything’s better when you work as a team.
