It is finished!
(until we get another few buckets more from a friend)
My daughter-in-love and stepmom helped me in the making
of apple sauce and apple juice this week.
We counted 37 quarts of golden apple sauce and apple butter combined
and 26 quarts of beautiful crimson crab apple juice
which we will use to make jellies later.
My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree
Toward heaven still.
And there's a barrel that I didn't fill
Beside it, and there may be two or three
Apples I didn't pick upon some bough.
But I am done with apple-picking now.
