Apple tree bee

I've always wanted
To own an apple tree
To grow my own fruit
To have for my tea

I went to the nursery
To choose the right one
That will taste best
And not need much sun

I chose the braeburn
Apple's I love
And found a tree
To nurture with love

But I hadn't remembered
About fertilisation
I needed another
To make a bee station

So now I have two
One for me, one for you
Double apples we'll have
If there's apple tree bee love

One year on
When the first apple fell
I rejoiced in the bees
Our experiment went well

This poem was written as part of the 100 word challenge for grown ups with the prompt

....as the apple fell.....
