the apple orchard
27 September 2010 Comments Off on the apple orchard
picking apples at the orchard today,
the one with the eighty year history, and
I watched the boys
in their excitement
choose the most splendid apple,
that brilliant specimen of Jonathan, Empire, Golden Delicious.
No willy-nilly picking for them.
And it was pretty much perfect
with apples filling the branches
and cider doughnuts with fresh pressed cider
And at this moment I know
we’re doing something right.
