A Foe Too Strong

A seed has fallen to the ground
From an apple that sustained a hungry bite
I could have cast it out of destiny to grow
Instead the beauty I wanted to behold
Of a seed so small and delicate as this
So I found a bed of soil from which it might
Stand a chance to spread its limbs in light
Weeks past, and though the sun was naught
The seed a mighty battle fought
