The Apple Tree

O wise and patient apple tree
Stirred by the wind from across the sea
Your branches shake unceasingly.

Comments about The Apple Tree by Pete Crowther

    Peter, I love the conversation you have with this apple tree...but the meter is consistent save for two lines in stanza three. This bothered me in the reading, for you had a consistent iambic tetrameter going and the longer-metered lines through off the poem. Your last three lines were really lovely.
