Butleigh - Harvest
Carpets of apples disappear
Our feel of loss is really quite sheer
Love which is lost is loved much more
Each apple is eaten right down to the core
By horses, by cattle by people by sheep
An apple fills my belly before I go to sleep
-- Julia Sheills --


The apple press is where the apples go
From the tall trees where they grow
The amount of apples get wider and wider
But soon they will not be apples
They will be juice
Dripping down into a glass
Dribbling down the side so fast
Now the time to take a sip
All this from an apple pip.
-- Chloe Cheyne --


Different apples on streets of trees
Red and green blowing in the breeze
Sky is blue, long grass is green
Apples never to be seen
Carpets of apples in long grass
Waiting for the machine to pass
We think there's sixty tons of apples
Different types, even dappled.
-- Johnny Edmondson --


Group Poems
Different apples on streets of trees
Carpets of apples
Crunching under my feet
Apples red, sour and sweet
Fit for all of us to eat
Rosy red apples
Waiting for its time to fall
Apples tempting, must have more
Falling bouncing once
Blue skies shining, reflecting
Apples cuddling the grass and bedding down
Bitter sweet and sour
Grass littered with apples
Apples red and apples green
Ever so sweet and ever so clean
Waves of apples like the tide
Apples falling like parachutes
I am the seed that grows the tree
That grows the apple
That grows me.
Pip Pip Hooray !
Cider and apple juice from a press
Take a sip it tastes the best
Made for when apples aren't here
The time when Christmas is near
Pressing it with non ending pride
Never felt so good inside
A Christmas present for you and me
Have it for your jolly tea.
-- Chloe Cheyne --


Rough bark blue sky
I see the mistletoe in my eye
I am the seed that grows the trees
That grows the apple that grows me.

You eat me, you seed me, now you don't
You see me now you bite
-- Kate Durbin --


Apples are lovely, apples are sweet
Apples dropping at my feet
Alas there is a single sour
In each there is immense power
-- Julia Sheills --
