Apple Time

The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden: God made them every one. 
Cecil F. Alexander

The apple tree out by the barn
Puts her fruit on
 Wears it set a bit askew
Like a pill box hat
Worn by an English duchess
It's her fashion statement
 Her jewelry,
 Her accessory,
Set off nicely against her green
And yellow dress.
She doesn't flaunt it
She wears it with confidence,
With grace that turns heads
The old tree!
