The Maple, standing long in green,
Decided now to change her gown.
She chose one of a golden sheen
And touched it up with red and brown.
She spread afar her golden arms
O'er Autumn's changing scene,
While sturdy oaks took quick alarm
And wore a sombre mien.

But soon her gown to tatters flew,
Torn by the fitful lust
Of ardent winds that scampered through
And shook her with each gust.
At last she stood in naked shame,
Her finery blown away,
While sturdy oaks grew quick aflame
Before her stark array.
