When dusty is the cider still
And the apple tree's in blossom
Workers fly to the house on the hill
To collect their sacs of pollen.

These tiny creatures toil away
In tree, in bush, in briar
They give us fruit & comb & grain
And drone in joyful choir.

We'll gather in the orchard grass
And feed the trees with song
We'll wassail with our bowls and bells
In all our buzzing throng.

When winter's cold leaves frozen mould
And we flock around our fires
We'll toast the bees and the apple trees
Full filled with heart's desires.
