Strawberry Norman

When apple blossoms shed their petals,
Apples emerge to show their metal.
But Autumn’s haste brings windblown fallens
To blush the cheeks of Strawberry Norman.

The orchard’s stillness disturbed by hornets,
Made quite drunk by Norman’s fallens
Quick, bring baskets to pick up Norman
To make scrumpy for Hereford Yeomen.
