Hugh Sexey - Harvest
Apple Orchard

Red apples, green apples, sweet apples, sour
All these apples spread wide across the grass
In many different colours
The wet grass gets kicked into the sky
As we walked up into the orchard
Some of the trees slanted and some are straight
Red apples, green apples, sweet apples, sour
-- Robbie Marshall --


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 time when orchards at its peak

The sun beats down on my back
Wasps nestle in the side of sweet apples
Yellow, red and green
Falling from the apple tree
While the flies and bees search for sweet nectar
Sitting in the hands of a tree
The branches and palms of the trees
Are full of glistening sweet apples
Sparkling in the sun light
While the grass sways around my feet
The wind calling through the branches
Full of apples. Still peaceful and quiet.
-- Jenna Purves --


Group Poems
A Somerset Orchard

Glastonbury Tor
Tall and grey
Across the sea
Of patchwork fields.

Closer towards me
Green and red
Apple trees
In a Somerset Orchard.

Cider farm and Orchard

As we sit in the grass
Where the apples grow
Wind rustling in the trees
Which grow in uneven rows

Dog is guarding the cider farm
As we watch apples being pressed
People helping the owner
Whilst they work, we are impressed.
-- Christie Zanelli --


The Cider factory

The smell of the cider
As strong as the taste
The noise of the machines
- Deafening

Deep, rough laughter
The squeezing of the apples
Rambling men's talk
- careful cooperation

The floor is damp
Apple juice everywhere
Sacks being opened
- a trailer full of sacks.
-- Samantha Chinnock --
