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 --


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 --


I see two people pruning
They said it takes four months
There are 10,000 trees and 37 different varieties
I seen the oldest tree, It was 58 years old
And in the winter it must be cold
Pruning is the most important job of all
And it looks fun.
-- Alice Sweeting --


Group Poems
Swans over head, rabbits under foot
Apples to the right, raspberries to the left
Robin straight ahead, pruning
Apple pear and plum trees
June at Robin's side grafting pear with plum.
-- James Morgan --


Clouds in the air
Brian running everywhere
Swans flying in the sky
Cutting the branches
So we get more apples
Luke sneezed 37 times
37 apple kinds.
-- Jonathan Lambert --


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.
