"Basketful of Memories"

written by

Cindy Prince

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 basketful of memories

Ripe as the apples

In my mind
