Holding an apple in my hand
takes me back over a half-century
to my Massachusetts childhood,
sinking my teeth into Winesaps.

(What did they taste like? I forget.)

Today, I read in the NYT online
that Gravensteins are fading from
California’s winey Sonoma County.

Where are the Winesaps of yesteryear?
Answer: Growing in Virginia.
