Regarding The Apple's History, A Theological Trifle - After Emily Dickinson - Poem by Warren Falcon

'It's good for the breath! '
With this she tempted Adam to death.


Properties of the apple are renowned since
their eating made it a greatly frowned upon thing.
Still, it is not without its lovers.
But for an apple's charm we would live boring lives,
never a fling or two to alarm the pear,
and we all know an apple will never harm
a teacher's pet, its fables to lure
the imagination, that Golden One's
strength to subvert us to the core.

Let's eat the jelly of sin and tell it!
William Tell's a good shot!
Let's split the Apple in the pot
and stew it for Eve's sly.
Even so our breath is sweet.
Tis the tart one of death
from which we'll all die.

Tis also true, though paradise is lost,
something is to be gained with apple sauce.
