Poetry Friday: THE APPLE WITCH

For Poetry Friday I offer this poem by twelve-year-old Eva from my book, Eva of the Farm.


Leaves whirling
from her moonlit skirt,
the Apple Witch sings
to the orchard trees:
"Winter will pass.
Wait again for me!"

Blossoms flying
from her twig fingers,
the Apple Witch blesses
the orchard trees:
"Spring will come.
Wait again for me!"

--Eva of the Farm
(page 89)

  1. "Moonlit skirt," and "Twig fingers," love those images.
