<i>MAPLES and OAKS</i>

MAPLES and OAKS

There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees.
For the maples want more sunlight,
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,
(and they're quite convinced they're right)-
They say the oaks are just too lofty,
And they grab up all the light.

But the oaks can't help their feelings,
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples,
Can't be happy in their shade?


Rush - (from "The Trees") - 1978

Maples and oaks compete for space in West Fork of Oak Creek Canyon, AZ.
For the trees' efforts, the observer is substantially awarded!
