Butleigh - Blossom
Pink and white blossom
On orchard trees
Little tiny rabbits
Hiding from the breeze

Sheep's that mostly stand and stare
In a bunch of wool
They walk around in orchard land
And look upon them all

Mistletoe hanging from different trees
The rabbit's dens full of leaves.

Old wooden gate
Buttercups mostly yellow

Sheep spread out
Some blossom left
-- Johnny Edmondson --


Bee's flying tree to tree
Grass covering acres of land
Mistletoe hanging from the trees
The famous Glastonbury Tor
in front of you
The slow breeze in your
head and hair
The different cider
Dabinett and Michelin
Trees standing strong and hard
How Butleigh orchards are so beautiful

Blossom growing
The pink and white spurting shells
Blossom everywhere throughout the acres
What a delight
Everything around you
Everything you see
Is covered in pink and white.

Wool on trees, mushrooms, green leaves
Beehives, grass, rows of trees.
-- Luke Holman --


In the orchard there's old gnarled trees
Their branches swaying in the breeze
Sheep running here and there
Bees buzzing all around
Enormous trees that stand so tall

Tiny blossoms really small
That's life in an apple orchard
-- Annabel Dukes --


Group Poems
My apple blossom is pinky plush
Your yummy comments make me blush
Pale mushrooms creamy white
Pink and white petals such a delight

Sheep are woolly, bees have stings
Bees pollinate throughout the spring
Blossoms are falling Apples will grow
Pink and white in the air, you can see it if you stare

Sticky berries stuck to the tree
Here comes the mistletoe.
Orchard tree with blossom growing
Blossom spurting out of its shell

Pink blossom floating to the ground
Pink and white blossom on flaky bark
Apple blossom all pink and white
The mighty heron is in flight

Waving grass along with the breeze
I can hear the humming of the bees.
Sheep wool wrapped around the trees
You taste the juicy honey in the air

Lichens spreading on the trees
Cowslips on the ground
In the orchard old gnarled trees
The branches swaying in the breeze.

Blossom opening day by day
Bees flying from tree to tree
Sheep that stare and mostly move.
Trees swaying from side to side
Blossom appearing day by day
Different apple juice getting sold by the minute

Cowslips sitting just next door
Tall grass like a jungle
The bee man collecting honey

Apple juices cox and bramley
Share the sensation with your family

October is coming, the cider is near
The trees are working hard
Its that time of year

Some trees are dead and some are alive
Next to them lies a buzzing beehive

You can see the outskirts of the tor
Above the silver misty moor.
Lichen spreading on the trees
Cowslips on the ground
Mistletoe all around
Tall grass like a jungle
-- Jack Tucker --


Cream, white, lilac, pink
All the colours you can think
Blossom on the trees
Swaying in the breeze
Falling, falling on the ground
Without making any sound

Dewy floors on the moors
As well as apple cores
I hear the sound of crunching
As I am munching
At apples of green and red
Its nearly time to go to bed

Butterflies flying in and out of the trees
No its only a cool breeze
Curved branches covered with white
Butterflies flying is a nice sight
The smell of apples
A sky bright blue

The sound of birds
The taste of honey too
The bee man explaining the worker bees fun.
All the honey will weigh a ton
Its getting dark let's go to bed
Yes. Night. Night. That's what I said !

Sheep of the orchard

Trees in rows
We're gobbling the grass
Flowing white branches
Curved trees
Calm
Sunlit sheep
Butterflies
The touch of sun melting on your back
The sky a bright blue.
-- Chloe Cheyne --


Apple blossom all pink and white
The mighty heron is in flight
Lime green leaves upon the trees
Branches swaying in the breeze

Sheepy Life

I'm short, fat and proud of that
Which puts me in the mood for food
The yummy green grass, nice and sweet
Which gathers around my little black feet
I can't see my friends because it is too long
The bees are humming their own little song.
