A pot of red

Let me show
This tree of red brick
It oozes slowly
But layers thick
It was Maple
In a summer green
Now of this expanse
It's the Bandit Queen
I seek a time
when it wasn't so
Will these bangles show me
I must know
Pick and hunt 'em
Wipe to see
Will they bring
What I threw carelessly
These bangles
Once of colour
Remain red
Despite the rubbing fervour
But you must believe
So come let's see
There's a red
Covering a mighty tree
Stand where I stand
And tell me if it isn't true
The tree in August
Is only of a red hue

Hey...This is a nice poem thought I am sure there is more depth to it than wht can be perceived in a single read...The red tree did remind me tht fall is here, fall is here!! Even nature changes it colors I understand now...:)
