A Sentiment

The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday.

An Apple Poem for a Friend

An Apple Poem for a Friend

It feels like fall let's go for a ride..

The tapestry's changing in the countryside.

The green's of summer are now changing their hue..

To the reds, rusts, and oranges that we once knew.

A ride in the country is on for today..

To see all the changes that are ever so gay.

We drive to our favorite spot out of the city..

To find just the perfect tree that's ever so pretty.

I look to the right and what do I see?

An apple that's hanging...waiting for me.

I dream of the sauces the crumbles and pie..

At home in my kitchen just ready to try.

Jonathons, Fujis, and then Paula Reds..

Recipes dancing around in my head.

We buy a big basket to take home with us..

We go to the car without making a fuss.

When we get home and pull in the drive..

I get a feeling of comfort and I'm oh so alive.

I have my apples on this fall country day..

Straight to my kitchen without any delay.

I get out my recipes all tried and true..

And make a sweet pie for my honey it's true.

He'll taste it and say, "Is there more of this dish?'

We have no more apples, a ride is my wish.

A drive through the countryside on a fall day..

We'll stop and buy apples is what I will say.

Hi Balisha, Great minds must run in the same direction! lol. Bob and I went to Boyd's Orchard near us on Saturday and had lunch and had all kinds of apple dishes to pick from as well as watching the children play and buying apples. I have already made apple bread pudding this year. I love the fresh apples in the fall, too. Your poem is so good as usual. Glad you are feeling well and getting out. Love, Judy

Hi Judy,
A good friend needed a poem for her Garden Club..she wrote, "Have you written one about apples and fall?" I wrote this for her.
Sounds like you and Bob had a good time...could you post your apple bread pudding recipe sometime? Pretty please???

Hi Balisha, this is so sweet and full of tasty thoughts! Fall is wonderful and so are apples, a match made in heaven! Love your new anemones too. Good luck with them. :-)

Love your poem! I don't know how you and others do it. I could never write a poem. I know because I tried. I love the fragrance of apples. It can really fill the car. And just think of all that autumn beauty out there, and that we were given eyes so we can see it. Or... was it the other way round?!

My mind is rhyming all the time.I wake up thinking about poems.
