XXXII. Mine Host of the "Golden Apple"

A kindly host 1 one day was mine,
A Golden Apple his only sign,
That hung from a long branch, ripe and fine.

My host was the beautiful Apple-tree;
He gave me shelter and nourished 2 me
With the best of food, all fresh and free.

And light-winged 3 guests 1 came not a few,
To his leafy 4 inn, and sipped the dew,
And sang glad songs before they flew.

I slept at night on a nice soft bed
Of moss,5 and my host so gently spread
His own cool shadow over my head.

When I asked how much to pay there might be,
He shook his great boughs merrily :
A thousand thanks, green Apple-tree !
THOMAS WESTWOOD.
