Apple Blossoms
 
Underneath an apple-tree
Sat a maiden and her lover;
And the thoughts within her he
Yearned, in silence, to discover.
Round them danced the sunbeams bright,
Green the grass-lawn stretched before them
While the apple blossoms white
Hung in rich profusion o’er them.
        Will Carleton—Apple Blossoms.

The apple blossoms’ shower of pearl,
  Though blent with rosier hue,
As beautiful as woman’s blush,
  As evanescent too.
        L. E. Landon—Apple Blossoms.

All day in the green, sunny orchard,
  When May was a marvel of bloom,
I followed the busy bee-lovers
  Down paths that were sweet with perfume.
        Margaret E. Sangster—Apple Blossoms.
