Sycamore Trees by Mary Bone

Sycamore Trees

The spring breeze blew through
the trees.
Resin dropped down
on the ground.
The sap was ready to be
made into syrup.
The syrup is sold to
neighbors and some is stored
for future consumption.
The Sycamore trees bend and
snap, waiting for a bucket
and a tap.
