Alyssa Andrea ENG 1002 Zordani 12 January 2016 Journal One: After Apple Picking Talk about the extended metaphor in the poem. What do you think is the underlying message? The metaphor in the poem is the apples. I think that the apples represent moments in the speaker’s life. The speaker uses apples to talk about things in his life that he did and didn’t do. I think the message of this poem is that a man is dying and thinking about his life. He regrets not taking advantage of every opportunity. This is shown in the line “Apples I didn’t pick upon some bough.” He is not sure if he has made all the right decisions and is worried about what will happen to him when he dies. He even mentions heaven in the second line. He says he hears the rumbling sound in the cellar bin, which I took as an illusion to hell, like the groaning of the tortured spirits that live there. Also line 34, where he says apples that weren’t bruised went to the cider heap with apples that did have defects, makes me think that the speaker is wondering if our choices even matter, or if our existence is meaningless.
