Song of July




 Here are a few stanzas that captured my senses today...


Field of Queen Ann’s Lace and brook without babble
Garnet of half-moon, woodland lullaby
And over the morning the soft sweet adorning
Of dew on the garden and blue on the sky

Green in the valley and gold on the hillside
Holly-hock halos and musky-dusk sigh
Wild-flower wonder in innocent splendor
Hay in the meadow and dust in my eye

Sleepy bird sonnet and sunset surrender
Silver birch glimmer, bronze oceans of rye
Front porch reunion in twilight communion
This is the beautiful song of July

...and this last slurpiest one just a minute ago...
