APPLES OF THE SUN

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

I've tasted apples of the sun
Peaches of the moon
Flown to Oberon
Where there are bestrewn many leaves

I've picked apples of the sun
Pears from Cygni C
Played with myrmidon
And melpomone who achieves

All she wanted to do
Where she wanted to go
What she wanted to make
Whom she wanted to know

I've tasted apples of the sun
Grapes from Salomé
Missed the halcyon
In the Milky Way that bereaves


Title inspired by Ray Bradbury's book--
