Red Acer.

Why, Red Acer, do you shed your leaves?
Your unveiled beauty still young in the mind,
The pique of winter rousing thieves.
Why, Red Acer, do you shed your leaves?
A devoted eye which still perceives
The charm that society might not find.
Why, Red Acer, do you shed your leaves?
Your unveiled beauty still young in the mind.

Beautifully crafted, I didn't know what red acer was, as it was the title drew me in, now I do, I would have known it as a japanese maple, your poem really does the species proud.
