The birthplace of the apple
The humble juicy apple,
first grown on tree’s in Kazakhstan.
widely thought a western fruit,
first born in middle earth.
In the city of Almaty,
that place of splendor and surprise,
from the impressive chorny canyon,
to the deep snows of shymbolak.
If your really into apples,
the ancient orchards are still there,
where the first fruit started growing,
as told in the story books.
The apple, the object of so many eyes,
Almaty the apple of Eurasia…
