Pretty Little Pear Tree

Pretty Little Pear Tree

Its Oxymoron day! Wordy wordless Wednesday. Our pretty little pear tree is blossoming a wonderful thing to see in the morning sun

Silver dust
lifted from the earth,
higher than my arms reach,
you have mounted.
O silver,
higher than my arms reach
you front us with great mass;

no flower ever opened
so staunch a white leaf,
no flower ever parted silver
from such rare silver;

O white pear,
your flower-tufts,
thick on the branch,
bring summer and ripe fruits
in their purple hearts.

Hilda Doolittle

    beautiful blooms and great poem. Such a lovely site seeing the trees in their full bloom.
    I love pears. So much a person can do with them;especially when it comes to baking.
    Ok, gotta ask. What kind of pear tree is it?
    Thanks for sharing

  4. They truly are a silver delight, especially at this time of year when they’re putting on such a gorgeous display.

  5. Beautiful blossoms and poem.
    We have several Bradford Pear trees, meaning no fruit trees but they are gorgeous when they are blossoming in the Spring right before the bright green leaves appear. In the Fall, I love to watch the leaves turn into wonderful orange, reds and browns, such a beautiful sight.
    Hope you have a fabulous day!

  6. This season of blooming trees is sheer delight. I’m just sorry it doesn’t last longer.
