An Apple Unpicked ~ Harvest Time Tablescape

An Apple Unpicked

I took ride upon the tractor,
Bushel at my breast
Through fields of amber,
Past the birds empty nest.

On through leaves of crimson,
I arrived to look down the lane
Where apples should be upon the trees
But already had been slain

I could see no fruit was there,
Not one apple in the trees
I just stood there...still, and quiet,
Listening to the buzzing bees

Never did I pluck from the tree
A singe fruit, round and red,
Only of the ground I lifted
An apple bruised and fallen dead.

Never I got what I thought,
To pick my apple from the tree,
To taste a bite, deliciously ripe-
The experience was not meant for me.
