Greeting us as we let in the light

watching in the darkness

as we shut out the night.


Bare in winter, yet, possessing still;

in summer welcome shade,

and early autumn, heavy with fruit.


But spring is the season you bloom,

flush with leaves and gentle blossom,

alive with birdsong and the hum of bees.


Oh, how we love you, our apple tree.

The day spring was lost


Fog in May 1

Lost to the fog and the rain

on this first day of May.


Gone is the early light of a spring morning

replaced with a dull palette of grey.


But, the birds, they are still singing

and courting amid the apple blossom.


And, the abundance of green

has not disappeared with the sun.


Spring, you are not lost, oh no…

you are still here; despite your winter guise.
