    And what is more melancholy than the old apple-trees that linger
    about the spot where once stood a homestead, but where there is
    now only a ruined chimney rising our of a grassy and weed-grown
    cellar? They offer their fruit to every wayfarer--apples that
    are bitter-sweet with the moral of times vicissitude.

The apples that grew on the fruit-tree of knowledge
By woman were pluck'd, and she still wears the prize
To tempt us in theatre, senate, or college--
I mean the love-apples that bloom in the eyes.

There's plenty of boys that will come hankering and gruvvelling
around when you've got an apple, and beg the core off you; but
when they're got one, and you beg for the core, and remind them
how you give them a core one time, they take a mouth at you, and
say thank you 'most to death, but there ain't a-going to be no
core.

Of tasting those fair apples, I resolv'd
Not to defer; hunger and thirst at once
Powerful persuaders, quicken'd at the scent
Of that alluring fruit, urged me so keen.
