Dancing under the apple tree

Here within my heart
Atop a knoll
Stands an apple tree
So strong and tall
The apple so sweet
Breezes so gentle

Here it is we sit
Upon velvet grass
Beneath this tree
I speak of my soul
You listen so well
To know more

Here you must know 
Is a vast domain
You've yet to see
Or experience
I'll take you there
Arise upon your feet

Here is fruit
Reach for it
Extend your hands
Let's celebrate
Under the branches
Before we go

Here is love
Forbidden fruit is a lie
Dance with me
Before all others
Who do not believe
In what is under this apple tree
