Frank Poems: ORCHARD ARCADY

Wikipedia

For Buddy, Stevie and Dave

Look what the loquat
Arranged for the orange
And the apricot!

A peach of a poem
By Lemn Sissay
About a young damson
And an elder berry
Who became a pear,
Tied the nut
Before Curate Quince
In the Apple Chapel,
Fruited and multiplied,
And leafed happily,
Amid figs, cherries and plums
And other poet trees,
Until the end of lime.

"Mr Bland's Orchard, Heighington, Lincoln." Alfred George Webster (1852–1916), Usher Gallery

"House by the Railroad," Edward Hopper, 1925
