There came the trembling of a tune
from strings of silver telling how
the chilled and frosted afternoon
felt loth to lose the singing bough.

Thrushes lingering late had flown,
orchards gleaned of ripened fruit,
save two red apples strung alone,
untouched, intact and absolute.

Air grew still as daylight pined,
soft clouds were gathered in the west
like curtains of rose-velvet lined
with saffron in a room of rest.

There came the trembling of a tune,
a faint and far-away farewell...
Cut by the sickle of the moon,
the two red apples fell.
