Apple Tree

Your sunny cheeks
are as red
as the autumn apple
and as shiny
as the sun that glows
in my heart
when I look at you
in happiness,
my child,
the fruit of lifes tree.

    Isn't it funny? ! A minute before you made me cry and now I' smile! !
    In Japanese tongue, there is a sickness called 'ringo byo' (apple sickness) sometimes children gets something like a cold, that makes kids cheeks instead of enjoying your poem like all the people do, I get shivers as i always do by thinking of kids sufferings..
