The little boy did not know
What the apple tree didn’t show
When he picked her fruits
And was used to her very roots
Yet the apple tree was not aware
What the humble earth had to bear
On her shoulders the weight of the leaves and the bark
Of the apple tree, light and dark
The humble earth and apple tree and little boy didn’t see
What the Endless had for thee
And all the other little children and all other apple trees
All other humble earths and all other –
