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.
