Creech St. Michael - Wassail
We saw three swans by the long ponds
They flew high above the blue sky
Then they looked down,
Children were picking leaves off the pretty trees
There were pretty sounds in the air
Rabbits birds and pretty hares
We heard the click of secateurs
-- Lucy Thrussell --


Clipping, snipping, sawing and pruning
Apples, pears, raspberries too
They all need pruning
With saw and secateurs
Extra twigs and branches
Stuck in rows between the trees
Ready for the chobbler to do its work
Eating them up, tidying them away
And when they're too old its time for grubbing
Pulled out of the ground, chopped and burnt
Clipping, snipping, sawing and prunin
-- Ryan Pittard --


Tree tree just for me
Buzzing in the air
Like a bumble bee

Tree, tree just for me
Apples so bitter
Don't drop litter

Trees trees wood of brown
Rain rain pouring down
Apples on the land

Tree, tree just for me
Worcester, Worcester just for me
Lots of pruning on the ground.
-- Alex Pearson --


Group Poems
Winter Visit to Charlton Orchards

Trees, trees, trees
How I saw trees
Apples pears, plums
For my tum tum.

They had to prune the trees
For rabbits, birds and bees

When I went into the orchard
I saw ten thousand trees.
And three swans
It was fun at the orchard.
-- April Bishop --


Swans flying higher than high
We didn't see deer, I don't know why
37 different apples, too many to choose from
While pruning watch my thumb

A man talking to a tree
I wouldn't if it were me
Gooseberry grown in a field
A lady bird that Toby almost killed.
-- William Trott --


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 --
