I thought I had posted this one already....guess not....well, this is a goosd time of year for it




Let us celebrate the coming of fall

By biting in to a freshly picked apple

The likes of which can only be found

In the small, rocky orchards

That dot the fields and hillsides

Here in New England.


Crisper than crisp

With a tartness that reflects

The taciturnity and sharpness

Characteristic of the hardy people

Who have cast their lot in life

Here in New England.


With a red that reflects

Leaves of frost-touched wetland sumac

And a touch of green not only recalling

Summer’s past, but also inviting dreams

About the spring to follow the coming snow,

Here in New England.


A New England apple is a rite of passage,

A microcosm of the annual procession

Of our world’s minuet around the sun,

We celebrate the passing seasons

With every wonderful, juicy bite,

Here in New England.

i saw New England when i was much younger and
was lucky to visit Vermont and Maine one October
and the colours still stay in my spirit; a NE apple
"is a rite of passage" indeed
i love this, Chip, love its atmosphere

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 10/4/2012
My perfect picture of what an Apple should be. There was a time when I expect to see the same kind of landscape for Washington apples. I was sorely disappointed when I found that the Western Washington apples were grown along stream beds in desert country, a far cry from the New England image I pictured in my mind.
