Apple ditty

The structures of the trees are clearer
The buds are opening grandly
The crunch of twigs is getting nearer
The apples will surely be bramley.
-- Daisy Baggs --


Sheep Lookout

Lambs are frolicking
Buds growing
Branches reaching out
To get them,
Must be trimmed
To prevent
The war of orchard trees

They'd shoot gnarled branches
Buds of steel
They would get the birds
To make us kneel.
-- Martha Parkinson --


Winter Orchard

Dark and flaky brown and bare
Tractors humming up and down
Trees are covered in all different colours
And bending in the breeze
Lots of humming by the bees
And lots of old dead broken leaves.

Group Poems
Orchard in Time

These trees are so bare
They only blossom when they dare
There are so many branches
Running in every direction
There is a mesh all around
To stop cows rubbing the bark down.
They are so very straight
Like a motorway so tight
Sunlight beaming down
You can almost see them frown
From leaves to apples to branches
These trees have nothing but buds
Which will come around in May.
-- Chris Glyde --


Springy Wintertime

In the spring the sun is shining
Everyday the lambs are playing
The leaves are growing and the blossom
Under a log I found a worm!
The apple trees are sprouting
And the beautiful green orchard
Blowing with the wind.
-- Kristy Wright --


Orchard poem 2a

The trees are bare
It's a very big scare
The shadow of a spider web
Is what the tree shows
The humming of the flies
Going round and round
Tractor makes a lovely sound.
As the lambs run away
In the astonishing sunny day.
