Sounds Like Maple Syrup

Branches creak in the chilly breeze -
Time to tap the maple trees.
Sap drips fast in a silver pail
Snow boots crunch back up the trail.
Sap is splashing, bucket pours.
Bubbles thicken. Fire roars.
Time for pancakes, "Mmm so yummy!"
Isn't this completely adorable? Check out the dog.
I'm tapping maple trees today.
