The Lyrics

Maple vice, maple vice—
In I bore, sap flows sweetly.
Clear and light, what a sight!
In I re-bore discreetly.

Walked in the snow
To where these booms* grow;
Booming growth, my timber.

Maple vice, maple vice—
Bless’d**, my homed lance is splintered!


*from the Dutch boom: tree, pole, beam
**“wounded,” from French blesser, to wound, injure
