"Ever since the days of Eden
Apples have been man's desire.
How overjoyed I am to think, sir,
Apples grow, too, in my garden."

Just bear in mind that it was only the cleric who suggested that Ophelia killed herself.  All of the other living characters in the book thought differently.  This is lovely, though.  The dress complements the girl's hair beautifully, and you are very fortunate have access to such woods.  Some running water or a prominent tree branch would probably make the reference more obvious.  I look forward to viewing more of your work.
