The Apple Tree

Sterappel

Huge a challenge

It stands before me

The apple tree 

Embracing the stem

Sends an irresistible urge

To climb and conquer

Each  battle won

Rewarded the sweetness

Of juicy fruits

***

Some make it big

While others are left

The agony of defeat

***

Back in the old neighborhood

I find the little house gone

And so is the tree

Strange a sadness comes over me

But then again

In me they live on
