2 September – First Discovery

The first Discovery was crisp and sweet,
a tangy, tasty orchard-plucked treat.
I eye the rest of the pile with tingling tongue,
apple month has only just begun.
Fruit bowl, fridge, cupboard and table
we’ll find as much space as we’re able
to fill with stocks of ripened fare
to feast on, freeze, stew and share.
But for now, even in this first crunch’s savour,
it’s all here distilled – pure September flavour.
