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.

Tonights tablescape features guess what????? Apples!  Harvest Time.  I know, the poem is a little depressing but hopefully the table will cheer you up! ;-)
