Too many apples fall from the tree
So much they make me nutter!
But I also happily gather them up
To make my gram’s apple butter
It’s cooking apples long and slow
Makes a spread that’s lush and dandy
With warming spices to your taste
And a secret splash of brandy!
If you’ve the fancy and the time
And apples by the bunch
You’ll be rewarded with preserves
That carry quite a punch
You can add it to any dish
That needs that apple wallop
Or eat it like my grammy did
On bread, a healthy dollop!
