The Richness of Poor Cousins

A Rose by any other name 
might be a mountain ash

Ain’t no big thing to sing
when spring and summer sing

No big thing to scent the air
when all your friends are fair

But when the fall and winter come 
and all the limbs and fingers numb

Who dare be red when all are brown

Mountain Ash or Rowan trees are members of the rose family (genus sorbus of the family rosaceae). They grow throughout the cool temperate regions of North America, Europe and Asia.
