Apple Stanzas

“As a chef one of my favourite passions was taking fresh fruit and making delicious pies, sauces and salad with them. How would you serve me an apple?

In another note, I must vanish for a few days. My laptop must go in for repair tomorrow, thanks to its keyboard failing. I shall return in a few days all being well. For now enjoy this poem.

I wrote this poem in answer to the following prompts:
Pensitivity’s three things challenge – Delicious – Overjoyed – Spoil

Apple Stanzas

Apples are Golden Delicious
Crispin and Bramley nutritious
Pippin’s overjoyed by a cox
Granny Smith sly as a fox

Braeburn has great taste
All apples are good for the waist
Apple sauce — you want Jonagold
Picking those, I caught a cold

Don’t let those Russets spoil
Add some sugar, bring to the boil
Add a Spartan pastry crust
A Scrumptious apple pie to trust

An apple a day
Keeps the doctor away
The acid on the other hand
No dentist can stand

Apples —the greatest fruit
Spring, pretty in its blossom suit
Autumn, delicious, pork and pie
I’m off to eat a Pink Lady —goodbye!


A bonus. This is my Apple and Pear Crumble recipe. Chef Felicity was part of the kitchen team in my failed mystery series. No matter, the recipe is still a delight. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading my friends. There’s more in the Poetry CornerShort Stories. and Short Stories 2 tabs.

Have a great day!
