A fruity San-San

The latest challenge from the boys and girls at Napowrimo.net as part of my ongoing task to write a poem a day was to write a san-san

The challenge is here for anybody who wants to take it up : http://www.napowrimo.net/day-fourteen-3/

The rhyming follows a pattern of a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d

So, inspired by the nearby Tudor gardens at Ordsall Hall in Salford, here’s my latest effort –

Fruit Tree

Growing against a Tudor brick wall,

old fruit ripens for the pie

coming from the tree but once a season

upon the cooks demand do they fall

over the skies the crows do fly

could this be why they are picked with haste?

there could be no other plausible reason

but to deprive the feathered friends from a taste
