Of the queen of the forest we sing --
Of her robes and her royal array;
We hail the first buds of the spring,
On the maple tree over the way.

Next, the bloom of the summer is seen,
Tho' oppressive the heat of the day;
And clad in her foliage of green,
Is the maple tree over the way.

Then, the frosts of the autumn appear,
When nature prepares for decay:
And robed in her rich golden sear,
Is the maple tree over the way.

Then comes the drear season at last,
With the storms of the chill winter's day;
And they spare not, exposed to the blast,
The maple tree over the way.

A lesson from this may be drawn:
The life that is blooming to-day,
Very soon will be withered and gone,
Like the Maple Leaves over the way.
