Creech St. Michael - Wassail
Chobblers crunch up big long sticks
Grafting using melted wicks
Grubbing, pulling whole trees up
Crunching apples putting juice in a cup
We saw the oldest tree in the line
But really to me they all combine
We watched Robin pruning the trees
And he said the deer eat all the leaves.

The insects caused the branches to bend
The have to prune to make it mend
There was evidence of animals going down the rows
Because you could see footprints of their toes.
Today I had really good fun
Even though there was no sun.
-- Yana Coles --


Trees being pruned
Gross, wet and soggy
Swans flying high
Birds chirping happily
Workers taking a break
Down in the orchard

Brown trees, Green trees
White swans, Blue sky
Black dog, pink blossom
What a colourful orchard.

Crunching of leaves
Chirping of birds
Whistling of a train
Drumming of woodpeckers
Pounding of a dog
Swaying of the trees
What a noisy orchard.
-- Harriet Chinn, Hannah Green, Sammy Trott --


Oldest tree since 1947
It's sometimes like a heaven
Hurry up apples
It time for you to come.

Lots of facts
For ever more
Hurry up apples
Raspberry, pears and lots lots more

So come to the orchard
You'll see
Branches, Twigs
New and old trees, animals.

So hurry up apples
I you come to the orchard
You'll see lots lots more.

Group Poems
Swans flying in the air
Brian running everywhere
Mr Small pruning trees
Deer and rabbit scarpering everywhere
A big tractor chopping wood
Mr Small talking all he could.
-- Luke Roper --


There were three swans flying gracefully
Down the river shimmering in the dark
Cloudy sky with their white, long and wide wings flapping
Up and down, over the orchard
Watching men and women pruning the trees.
14 acres of land with 10,000 trees
To be done while the rabbits eat the bark
Of the small branches, deer way away the hedge
For a walk way.. If you stay quiet
You will hear helicopters buzzing
And trains rustling in the wind.
-- Andrew Bryant --


Hop hop
Goes me
Lots of things are above me.
I live in an orchard
Loads of people come
And scare me away.
But I stay of course
Cos I love it here.
Lots of apples, twigs raspberries and pears
So hop hop hop goes me
Because I am a rabbit for evermore.
-- Rebekah Sydenham --
