Blossom is growing as the lambs are born
All the lambs see all the new surroundings
And they take their first stumbling steps.
All the blossom is beautiful. All pinky white
And the leaves are growing green
Soon it will be over. But I will have that memory.
Sun beating between the trees
Blossom blowing in the breeze
Sheep Baaing from far away
Birds chirping as they play
Flies buzzing round and round
Children running making a sound
The smell in the orchard off we go !
Then here comes the mistletoe
The blossom is pink
It doesn't stink
It looks like a white cloud
It looks quite like an imaginary tree
Was it once a magic tree?
With power in its trunk
Did a dwarf once live there ?
But it is rotten now and about to fall down.
What and Why
Why school ?
Why sheep ?
Why orchards ?
Why people ?
Why pictures ?
Why animals ?
I have always wondered
Why apples ? Why trees ?
We wouldn't be able to breathe.
10 Million bees go from tree to tree
And make loads of honey and money
In the hive very stuffy
Each going in and out very loud
Bees making communication
Queen laying eggs.
The Royal Jelly
Feeds one belly
They live in a hive
when they are alive
They make honey
Which is very yummy
They go in a swarm
That keeps them warm
They're yellow and black
With little legs with sacks
They protect the queen
And keep her nice and clean.
Full Moon Tonight
The moon is breaking through the sky
Giving a creep to the orchard
There are some owls hooting somewhere
Under the trees sheep are grazing
The cows are bawling to each other
Right in front of me
The blossom is glistening white
Like diamond cobwebs in the moon
Petals are falling like snowdrops
A million at a time
Right in front of me.
