Canada’s Nectar

A little, silly something for today …

Maple Syrup


Canada’s Nectar

My favourite vegetable, by far,
is not what you’d expect
(No, not chocolate, although that
would come in second best.)
The veggie that I most crave
comes from Canada, so fair,
I eat it with my pancakes,
which my hubby makes with care.
Yes, Maple Syrup is my choice
of vegetable supreme,
And before you argue, “It’s not veg,”
my case, I must convene.
The syrup comes from Maple Trees,
the liquid: rather plain,
but boil it up and watch it change,
It will be hard to abstain.
My point is this: the Maple Tree
is a plant, complete with leaves,
and, surely, that means Canada’s best
into me, good health breathes!


I had planned to share this yesterday as it was Pancake Day in the UK, but, well, you know about best laid plans and all that jazz!

  1. Hey there! Nothing silly about “Canadian Nectar!”
    It’s the best. Of course, I may be a little biased being a Canadian myself. And, yes, I had pancakes for supper last night with blueberries and, what else, maple syrup! Only the real thing will do!
    See you on WDC! šŸ™‚
