In Maine each year the last Sunday in March is marked as Maine Maple Sunday. Sugar shacks around the state open their doors and celebrate everything maple. Today I purchased not only Pure Maine Maple Syrup, but Maple Syrup Jelly.
Our hands stiff with cold,
We pour the amber sweetness onto the stack
Piled high and toppling,
The sugar shack steams and smokes,
We have our fill
Braving the wind gusts
Atop a hill,
You never know what weather
Will beOn Maine Maple Sunday.
