APPLE BLOSSOMS
WILLIAM WESLEY MARTIN

When the bride and maidens wear
Apple blossoms in their hair;
Apple blossoms everywhere,
In the spring!

If you have not, then you know not, in the spring,
In the spring,
Half the color, beauty, wonder of the spring.
No sight can I remember
Half so precious, half so tender,
As the apple blossoms render
In the spring!
