"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Usage "There is/are". How? and Why?

Maybe my question sounds a little silly but please explain me the difference between two expressions.

"There is apple on the table"
"An apple is on the table"

Both expressions are grammatically correct (I hope:-)) and It seems to me that they have the same meaning. at least these two expressions translate in my native language equally.

Please, explain me when I shoud use each of these expressions. How and Why. If there is good article about this expression, please send me link.

I'm sorry if same topic on this forum have already existed. I didn't find it.
