Blossom filling all the trees
Pink is the blossom, green are the leaves
All the cider on the farm
Bales of hay stacked in the barn.
The grass is blowing
All the buttercups are growing
All the clouds in the great big sky
The bees do their work and then off they fly.
The sky is lovely and it's blue
The clouds look like some people too
The birds are always happily singing
Happiness they are bringing
It's very warm smiles the sun
People writing and having fun
The view is spreading in front of my eyes
The water reflecting off the sky
The flowers growing everywhere
It makes it lovely when you stare
Different shades of wonderful pink
Peaceful, peaceful, lets you think.
Sights and sounds of an orchard
Pink and white like fairies wings
Blossoming wide while the birds all sing
Singing louder their voices wide,
A circle of birds above a barn of cider
Cider is sweet in the pressing drum
A little boy says I can have some.
Some are red, some are green
Loads of apples I have seen
I've seen cows, birds, blossom and bees
I can feel the summer, I am at ease.
Easy going all day long
Just like the cows that wander along
Along the lake across the way
Time to go home we have had a nice day
The Meadows in the breeze
The blossom shimmers freely
With the gradual rustle of the trees
In the steady breeze,
The sun wraps it's warmth around my face
While the bees get to work,
Day in, day out, unable to stop
Buzzing as they go
Through the steep meadows
On grassy hills
Unable to stop
Unable to stop
Unable to stop
Looking out to Avalon
An eternal sunlit plain reaches
Out to the shroud of purple haze
Out from the orchards in bloom
Still platinum-flooded fields
Sit sagging in the sun
In the turquoise tree edged bowls
On the patchwork of Godney Moor
Green leaves hang, blue or golden
In the stained glass dappled light
They shine, ornamental green faces
On the branches spread like pointed finger.
Butterfly petals flutter, vanish
Into the warm, scented grass
French horn curved branches sing, carefree now
But will, one day, sag with fire bright apples.
What can I see ?
What can I see from my perch in the orchard?
I see humans dozing under my outstretched fingers
The cows munching at my feet and rub on my body
And the horizon far, far away dotted with green bushy trees
What can I hear from my perch in the orchard ?
I hear a young sparrow gleefully singing his favourite song
The bees buzzing in and out of my silky white ears
And the rumble of a distant car hurtling along the road
What can I feel from my perch in the orchard ?
I can feel the tall green grass tickling my knees
The wind rustling my hair and slightly chilling my body all over
And the pain as animals steps on my toes or snaps my arms
But as the winter draws near and my leaves have gone
I can see everything and everyone !
The flight of the honey bee.
I am flying high above the clouds
And swooping low amongst the crowds
Weaving in and out of cattle
Speeding past the cider apple
Running streams where I see my reflection
Finding more for my honey collection
I'm flying back to the beehive now
Oh No ! how will I dodge this cow
It is munching happily on that juicy grass
I must somehow find another way to pass.
Where is the beehive ? Oh No! I'm lost
I've got to find it. I simply must !
The sun is shining hot on my face
I wish I could find shady place.
Look an orchard and there's the bees
Safe at last. I'm so pleased
No more cattle, no more sun
Only honey and my mum.
