Apple Pickin' Time

It is apple pickin' time in Georgia
Come get them while they're crisp and not quite ripe 
Bite into apple's delicious tartness
From the tree's garden of Eden a few swipe

Down where the apple blossoms in springtime
Many hearts flourish fulfilling life's fate
And red grapes produce a fine wine sometimes
The apple-grape wine gets sweet with a wait

Come gather in the harvest~apples golden
Clip some stems of the grape chosen
Mix the two in baskets enjoy their delight
Harvest two fruits with their sweet juice swollen

It is apple pickin' time in Georgia
Come get them while they're crisp and not quite ripe
Bite into apple's delicious tartness
From the tree's garden of Eden a few swipe

This short poem like fine apple-grape wine
Will  become better if allowed to age
Then drink a swig while on roast chicken dine
If I did this one right, well just you gauge
