Basketful of Memories

Basket of apples
As I tag along singing
Following my brother
Sitting on Mother's lap
As I take my first bite
The skin tight
On my teeth
Sitting underneath
The golden apple tree
As juice runs down my chin
And I go back again
A basketfull of memories
Ripe as the apples
In my mind
