This month, this season
we will gather under the apple tree
as Autumn dawns upon the earth
to pray under the apple tree
so dear to Pomona’s heart.
Dear and wise Pomona, we invoke thee
in the sacred month of your apple tree
to bring forth your fertility.
Fill our minds with creativity,
our hearts with love and compassion
as you bless your dear apple tree
with her harvest’s sweet fruition.
She profusely blooms white in Spring,
attracting many friendly bees
which pollinate her flower.
With your divine grace and joy,
you reward them with your nectar.
Let it be to you as nectar
this prayer to you that we offer
in praise and supplication
with our purest love and great affection.
You shall clothe her leaves in colors
as the Autumn nights get cooler.
This apple tree we gather under
will display your loving nature:
red, orange, gold
and mixtures thereof.
With reverence and with love
we honor you, our Lady Pomona
this apple tree month…
and adoringly forever.
