I wonder... What tree is it?
 
Is it the tree where whirlybirds nest?
 
or the tree where to hitch helicopter rides?
 
I see... now, you tell me...
 
It is the Maple tree!
 
When these paper winged seeds propel about
 
from the awning of  a Maple tree...
 
Depending on what kind,
 
you’re lucky to find...
 
Two-winged samaras, doubling the fun!
 
As they descend from the tree..
 
It's entertaining to see ...
 
above your head...
 
Try to catch them as they fall...
 
twirling and spinning,
 
gracefully touching down.
