The Planting of The Apple Tree

 Come let us plant the apple tree
 Cleave the tough greensward with the spade 
Wide let its hollow bed be made 
There gently lay the roots and there 
Sift the dark mould with kindly care
 And press it o'er them tenderly 
As round the sleeping infant's feet 
We softly fold the cradle sheet
 So plant we the apple tree.
