The Sugar Maple

Give me some sugar

 Oh if I were a tree, what kind, or sort would I be?

I would want to be a hardy type, maybe one of towering height

 Could I stay green all year being brought indoors for Christmas cheer?

Or maybe stay out of doors ending up as someones floors

 Tall, or small with fruit, or none at all

So many of any kind, some with needles and some with fronds

 Still others that reflect brilliantly colored leaves on Autumn ponds

Each having a splendid pupose and giving tirelessly to us all

 The seasons bring forth their fruits in Winter, Summer , Spring and Fall

But the question stiil remains which kind would I be?

 and my answer would always stay the same, the Sugar Maple tree

In the winter I bring forth my sap, dropped in a bucket, through a tap

 then as temps start to rise, my leaves come forward towards sunny skies

The summer is hot and for those who dare, you may seek the comfort of my shady lair

 When the heat gives way to Autumn cool and the children return back to school

I am adorned in Heavenly splendor with my coat of various hues

 Announcing the seasons coming as a herald of good news
