Creech St. Michael - Harvest
When we arrived
We had to dive
Out of the bus
Because it was raining

We had a little break
So we didn't have to make
Such a racket.
We were wild !

We saw the cider press
But there was a lot of mess
So we saw big tanks
Where the cider was held.
But then it started to hail.
-- Rebekah Sydenham --


It was cold and wet at the cider farm
There were seven chickens
Under the apparatus
Under the slide
The pomace was fed to the cows
Two donkeys were in the field
Sheltering from the rain.
-- Ellie Bradley --


I saw a big machine
That crushed the apples
To make the cider and apple juice
And the machine was very, very big
And very, very strong
It was lifting up
And pushing against a metal platform
To make the orangey red juice
Which turns into cider.
-- Tray Loveridge --


Group Poems
An orchard has yummy fruit
Places like orchards are great
Pippin apples are red
Lord Lambourn are so yummy
Egremont Russet are red and green
Spartan are lovely to drink.

I went to the orchard
I did not see the blossom
Instead apples green and red
And grass.
All I seen was green on the trees
Apples crushed and squeezed into a pulp
Layers of wood and cloth and apple
Juice running down golden brown.
Vats tall and black and made of wood
All the apple juice pumped along
And left to ferment.
-- April Bishop --


I love having apples
Especially cider
I like green apples
But certainly red

Makes me healthy
And my keeps teeth clean
But the thing I hate most
Is apple pie !
-- Lauren Hornsby --


Pouring down rain of brown
Tremlett's bitter, really bitter
Squashed up apples
Get out the juice
Oak barrels, cider get ready
Wild yeast swishing juice
More apples getting clean
Now is raining, sun come out
Rain rain pouring down
Apples red, green brown
Pouring down rain of brown.
