- Write a sweet poem.
- Write a sour poem.
by John Yeo
An apple tree stands in seasonal splendour
Starkly denuded in Winter
In Spring young buds appear
Bursting into small green leaves.
A sweet heady smell of blossom,
Attracts insects and small birds
Feeding off sweet tasting nectar
Pollinating neighbouring apple trees.
A delight to the eye and the senses
Birds sing sweetly building nests
Bees with sweet honey in hives below.
The blossom falls swirling, sweeping
To the ground under the branches.
Mixing with Spring flowers creating
A sweet smelling floral carpet below.
Small green apples begin to form
As late Summer merges with Autumn.
Soon full grown apples, sour to the taste
Are harvested and distilled with oceans of
Sweet, sticky gooey sugar blotting out
The natural sharp sour taste.
The leaves begin to fall with Autumn winds
An apple tree stands starkly denuded
As wild wet stormy Winter comes again.
