Growing apples

Making things is arduous
The labour is so tough
Working thru the night again
You do it out of love
Living thru the summer
In the heart of the sun
Growing things is hard work
But eating them is fun

Carrying the water
On those days of drought
Calling for the bees to come
That you cannot do without
Waiting for the buds to form
For the fruit to come
Growing things is hard work
But eating them is fun

Planting in the early spring
In the hard cold soil
Watching March winds blow again
April rains of toil
Soon they grow above your head
Drinking in the sun
Growing apples is hard work
But eating them is fun

I have had difficulty eating fruit it sort of like a still-life that I should draw a picture of rather than eat.
