The Apple Tree


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
