Hoyt & Roberts, comps.  Hoyt’s New Cyclopedia of Practical Quotations.  1922.
The scarlet of the maples can shake me like a cry,
Of bugles going by.
        Bliss Carman—Vagabond Song.
That was a day of delight and wonder.
While lying the shade of the maple trees under—
He felt the soft breeze at its frolicksome play;
He smelled the sweet odor of newly mown hay.
        Thos. Dunn English—Under the Trees.
I mark me how today the maples wear
  A look of inward burgeoning, and I feel
Colours I see not in the naked air,
  Lance-keen, and with the little blue of steel.
        Edward O’Brien—In Late Spring.
