An Apple, Personified



You’re the “apple in my eye”

peeled and quartered

spiced with cloves

steamed with brown sugar

sauce for the soul

keeping the doctor away (one day at a time)

regular, like a pear

fresh off the tree (unlike an orange)

the red glow, the green luster

the shiny apple in my eye!
