As a young child I grew up singing this song every spring. And still to this day whenever the white blossoms appear on the trees I burst out with this song. It was written in 1924 by a sweet lady by the name of Georgia W. Bello while looking out her window one spring morning at her lovely apricot trees that had just burst into blossoms she was inspired to write her thoughts.
The words to this simple and joyful song are:
“I looked out the window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricto tree.
Spring has brought me such a nice surprise,
popcorn popping right before my eyes.
I can take an armful and make a treat.
A popcorn ball that will smell so sweet.
It wasn’t really so, but it seemed to be . . .
popcorn popping on the apricot tree.”
*Note to myself . . . remember to make time to notice and ENJOY the little things like popcorn on apricot trees and all the other beautiful blossoms.
