Paul Laurence Dunbar

The Unlucky Apple

 Next Poem          

'TWAS the apple that in Eden
Caused our father's primal fall;
And the Trojan War, remember —
'Twas an apple caused it all.
So for weeks I've hesitated,
You can guess the reason why,
For I want to tell my darling
She's the apple of my eye.
