The Garden of Idunn

She hides her apples
         in a wooden box
sealed with magic.

She feeds them to those
             who have found
the elemental god within.

Feeds them to
trembling mouths.
Cuts a little piece
          from the apple of youth
places it in the craving mouth

And she walks her garden silently
                  with the box
well hidden in her heart.

Waters the apple tree
              with tears of empathy.
