Song Lyrics Sunday: Apple Blossom White

The Challenge set by Jim Adams in his post linked below, is to find a song lyric that has something to do with a prompt. This week the Spring Blooming prompts of Blossoms/Cherry/Flower

Many of you who know me, know that I love old songs. I instantly thought of this one:

Cerezo rosa

Perez Prado

It’s cherry pink and apple blossom white
When your true lover comes your way
It’s cherry pink and apple blossom white
The poets say

The story goes that once a cherry tree
Beside an apple tree did grow

And there a boy once met his bride to be
Long long ago

The boy looked into her eyes, it was a sight to enthral
The breezes joined in their sighs, the blossoms started to fall
And as they gently caressed, the lovers looked up to find
The branches of the two trees were intertwined,

And that is why the poets always write
If there’s a new moon bright above
It’s cherry pink and apple blossom white
When you’re in love

And here is a version sung by Pat Boone. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this musical interlude 🙂


Nature’s Blossom Bounty – a short poem

What would our glorious gardens be?

If Nature’s beautiful blossom tree

had been made in a laboratory?

No wondrous eyes would ever see

it’s simple and heavenly symmetry.

Thank God for Nature’s brilliant hand

that’s seen across this glorious land.

Constable Jones had a regular beat that incorporated Lorrimer Park Crescent, its surrounding streets and the small park itself. Lady Audrey Patterson lived on that particular street and it was her maid, Elsie, who was found murdered in the park one morning a couple of weeks before.

The official enquiry had not uncovered anything at all. There had been no witnesses and so the case had gone cold.
