Young Orchards

If you want to see

Life at work

Walk in a young orchard on

A morning in mid-May

It is as close

As you will get

To the day of creation

A fresh, green miracle

The rows neatly ordered

Branches exploding with foliage and flowers

Bees and ladybeetles ravenous amid

All the lush glory

Thriving not for man or money

But just to live

Go into a young orchard

And see

A world furiously racing

Time departing

With only one clear objective
