She Had Only to Stand in the Orchard

by Willa Cather

She had only to stand in the orchard,
to put her hand on a little crab tree
and look up at the apples,
to make you feel the goodness of planting
and tending
and harvesting at last.

As featured on
The Daily Gardener podcast:

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
