Apple Blossoms

by: William Wilsey Martin (1833-1913)

Have you seen an apple orchard in the spring?

In the spring?

An English apple orchard in the spring?

When the spreading trees are hoary

With their wealth of promise-glory,

And the mavis pipes his story

In the spring!

Have you plucked the apple blossoms in the spring?

In the spring?

And caught their subtle odors in the spring?

Pink buds pouting at the light,

Crumpled petals baby-white,

Just to touch them--a delight!

In the spring!

Have you walk'd beneath the blossoms in the spring?

In the spring?

Beneath the apple blossoms in the spring?

When the pink cascades are falling,

And the silver brooklets brawling,

And the cuckoo bird is calling,

In the spring!

Have you seen a merry bridal in the spring?

In the spring?

In an English apple-county in the spring?

When the bride and maidens wear

Apple blossoms in their hair,

Apple blossoms everywhere

In the spring!

If you have not, then you know not, in the spring,

In the spring!

Half the color, beauty, wonder of the spring.

No sweet sight can I remember

Half so precious, half so tender,

As the apple blossoms render

In the spring!
