Apple Pickin' Time


In the fall we used to go to the old Johnson place
To pick apples from the aging trees out back
They patiently stood with lichen covered grace
A once grand old house now off the beaten track

Boxes and buckets and bags we'd carry along
Who could forget Mom's big picnic lunch
Picking was fun and Dad sang an old song
We were always a boisterous and happy bunch

When picking was done and we'd eaten our fill
We'd dangle our feet in the sweet little stream
Then  tired ,all headed for home, excited still
Thinking of pies, sauce, and apples with cream...

In the fall we used to go to the old Johnson place
To pick apples from the aging trees out back
They patiently stood with lichen covered grace
A once grand old house now off the beaten track

    This is very good Barbara. You would probably have gotten first but there should have been another verse. My favorite of all. Love, Joyce
