Hugh Sexey - Harvest
Apples Falling

Apples falling from trees around
Landing on the grassy ground
Bags of apples all different types
Packed together all nice and ripe
Dragon flies buzz as they fly by
Green leaves from trees cover the sky.
-- Rosie Hodgson --


Apple juice

Nice and sweet
Then becomes sour
Nice and fresh from the apples

Very yummy I need more
Glass by glass
Can't be enough

Very refreshing
On a warm autumn day
Tastes like a cider apple

The smell of apples
Being crushed
The workmen making cider.
-- Serin Rayner --


Reminder

Apples are like friends
They're always there when you need them
-- Robert Sparks --


Group Poems
The colour of leaves

Sacks of apples under the tree
Roger Wilkins laughing with glee
The colour of leaves stuns my sight
I never knew they could reflect so much light

Down in the shed the murmured talk
You can even hear it when you walk
In the barn where apple get presses
Drinking apple juice you never get stressed
-- Jack Rowley Noble --


The cider and the apple

The smell of cider wafts through the air
The press is mounted with crushed apples
As the darkness falls around me in the gloom
Men spread the apple on the press and cover it with cloth
Boarded up with a slab of wood
Men do this 11 or 12 times
This ancient place towers over me
Dark and gloomy
Coldness comes over thee
Apple juice sweet sour and sharp
Pours out of the bottom
Pushed along the rails
Squeezed out even more
Just to be fermented.
-- Jenna Purves --


The apples

A pitter-patter of little feet
As we trek up the almost mountain-like hill
To our astonishment the blossom was gone
Not a trace
But now the apples grow in full
I walk on a carpet of red, green and yellow apples
Slipping and sliding I get to the top
From there I can see across the levels
Kingston Black and Dunkerton's Late
Lovely cider they do make
We taste the cider from the crusher
It is amazing
As the day ends I am glad I've been
I'm privileged to see the things I've seen.
-- George Cressy --
