If you put ‘Acer’ into Google
guess what you will see?
Lot of reference to laptops
but seldom to a tree
And yet the humble maple
(the namesake of that brand)
is the pure derivation which,
when seen, you’ll understand

The tall ones are so graceful
But the ‘Acer Palmatum’
really is exquisite
and is for us the one
