The Apple

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

In gratitude of heart
Lift my eyes did I
But lo bless me
Another apple saw I

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

Not more luscious
Not more red
I won’t say more lovely
And not more ripe

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

Blink hard tried I
To temptation ward off
Turn away tried I
But all effort vain was

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

Outward my arm held I
A grab to make
But heart got stung
When fruit was missed

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

I called it tart
No good for my tongue
To kill the lust
And bury the want

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

But no fool is sense
Big tool mind can be
The eyes can see
And heart can feel

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe

Truth’s a pain
The heart won’t feign
That the apple’s not mine
And another will find

O apple luscious
O apple red
O apple lovely
O apple ripe
