Apple Pie

I will send you rain in its season
 and the ground will yield its crops 
and the trees their fruit.
Leviticus 26:4

There is applesauce bubbling
 And a crusty deep dish pie
 Cortland, Granny Smith, and Northern Spy,

All the finest cultivars
Red Delicious, Enterprise, Elegant, and Rome
The smell of spicy sweetness calling us home;

To crisps, juice, and jellies
Pippin, Winesap, and Arkansas Black
Johnathan, Jonagold, and Jonamac

Macintosh, Honeycrisp, 
Red, green, and the prettiest yellow
Honeycrisp, Ozark Gold, and Sunnimellow

Autumn comes and summer goes
With apples, apples, apples.
