Quote for the Week

apple tree

sunlight filters through leaves of apple tree

      John Updike, art and literary critic, novelist, poet and short story writer
      “The breezes taste of apple peel. The air is full of smells to feel-
      Ripe fruit, old footballs, burning brush, new books, erasers, chalk, and such.
      The bee, his hive, well-honeyed hum, and Mother cuts chrysanthemums.
      Like plates washed clean with suds, the days are polished with a morning haze.”
