You’re delicious and nutritious,
and when I open you,
you show me a flower
with five seeds
planted inside.
You’re as soft as silk
and when I make pie crust
to put you in,
I gently put you down.
And it feels like I am wrapping you in a blanket.
You are healthy and
good for my body.
When I bite into you
it feels like a thousand doves swooped me up
and I was lifted to heaven.
You’re so wonderful
and make me joyful.

    You make me want to eat a apple….but study and
    think about the apple before I eat it.
