Apple Trees Cry


the old apple tree
cried like a baby
losing its apples
like a dog losing fur
shedding
and shedding
like the old days of
blood letting
but the apples
danced
the apples danced
and a life
it took a glance
the old apple tree
was getting old
losing its apples
and shedding
and such a cry baby
the old apple tree
surrounded by birds
bees and honey
such a good creature
the old apple tree
Mother Nature
how good you are
to the apple tree
resting in God's
eternal sunshine
