Poem

Apples

As I turn the crank
the last apples of the season
resolve into applesauce.

Blessed be the apple trees and their fruit.
I taste the sweetness on my tongue:
sunshine and rain, bees and blossoms,
and the patient farmer who tends the trees.

All Spring, Summer and Fall
swell in the ripe fruit. I taste them all.

The cold barn of winter stored this fruit
I taste again as apple blossoms
perfume the air and the bees hum
to bring forth apples for this years harvest.

Even as these blossoms sprinkle to the earth
I give thanks for the last apples of last year's blossoms.
