Apple Blooms Poem

Apple Blooms
Charles Henry Chesley, Parks Floral Magazine, June 1907 issue,  pj: 79


Swallows at the meadow edge
Lilt their matin tune,
Cookoo calls beyond the hedge
Tell us it is June
Buttercups and verdant slopes,
Green and gold and gray,
Fill the soul with summer hopes,
Fill the heart with May.
Apple blooms, like crystal snow,
Drift and whirl and fall,
Covering the grass below
With winter pall.
Spring is in the air and sky,
Not Decemeber gloom,
Let the June-flakes flit and fly-
Snow of apple bloom
