I walk in this OLD orchard
to pay a VISIT to Betsy and Daniel ...
She departed this world in 1865
he followed her 3 years LATER ...
I don't know WHAT it is,
but there is SOMETHING familiar
that ATTRACTS me to this tombstone,
SEATED right in the middle
of HUNDREDS of apple trees,
high on a stack of rocks ...
beautiful etched slab of marble
having gone through SO MANY seasons ...
Witnessing the apple trees
BLOSSOM in spring,
RIPEN their fruits in summer
BENT over by their weight
and heavy PERFUME in fall ...
TWO persons lying side by side
This is what
LIFE is ALL about ...
that keeps ON turning ...
