Monday's Poem

Patricia at L'Anse aux Meadows NL, Viking settlement.

© 2014 by Patricia A. McGoldrick

Girls and Green Apples

The best tree to climb
Stood twixt the vegetable garden
And Dad's field of red clover
The branches sprawled just so
With more than enough offshoots
For young girls to go
In search of green apples

Furtively climbing
With clear glass shaker in hand
We had salt, ready and waiting
To sprinkle atop bitefuls of
June’s feast of lime globes

This annual taste treat came
Long before harvest and
Well worth the woe.
