Canadian Thanksgiving Photo
The crimson tree was all decked
out in Autumn's finest hue;
Standing tall 'midst other colours, she won my heart, to view.
The river of blue was in the front;
amber, green, beside;
Orange, and brown from the grand-old-oak didn't try to hide.
It was as if .... she was speaking
to all - "Happy Thanksgiving Day!"
What more could one ask from nature's realm, than a greeting in
this fine way?
"Thank you," from all
Canadians who have a chance to see
The crimson maple standing tall - as Canadian as she can be.
