Hello, I'm Neo and if you have found me
you are near a gold mine of sweet treasure
Aunt Jemima's call for breakfast
Canada's symbol of life
and the most popular hockey team
A North American black bear's sticky beehive
A golden honeypot of sappy, oozing,
fine glucose for my brain and bright yellow fabulous
International House of Pancakes
The base of a most spectacular and colorful tree
Underside the elegant leaves of Acer Sapindaceae
green in spring, yellow in late summer and brilliant red in fall
Don't confuse me with Snowballs found in Walmart
Don't look for me in clear wrappers in supermarkets
Don't expect me to be found inside boxes at toy stores
But, keep your eyes open for pink and yellow wool and listen for muffled beats in the night as you stroll around
maples found from Nova Scotia to the Everglades
I spend my youth eating green leaves so when I mature I have long antennas to find your scent
and only when dusk approaches may I find you nestled under a maple leaf or dancing in the soil beneath
We mustn't let the birds of prey find us during the day but rendezvous when the sky turns a silver maple, blue with a shimmery hue that only you and I can see
