A Good Read

"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, 
 I  would still plant my apple tree." 
Martin Luther

I chose the book carefully
Mystery tale with the scent of the library
My favorite smell

I climbed up into the apple tree
Pulled my book up in a bucket after me
My favorite place

 Settled on a branch with a view
Chose an apple, red-skinned and white-speckled,
My favorite fruit

Sat quiet—and bit into it
While I sucked the sour apple's juice
My favorite story
