Ah, Fare Thee Well, Mademoiselle

Writer's Digest PAD Challenge day 29: (already!) For today’s prompt, write a haphazard poem. 

Her hair askew,
Missing a shoe,
Her dress in disrepair
And all around
On the green ground
Are hints that she was there.

Her plans half-made
She is way-laid
 By fairer next-of-kin
Who strolls amazed
On trails she blazed
On Mother Nature's skin

She will not see
The laden tree,
The garden flushed with bloom,
A pioneer
Her grin and tear
Threads Mother Nature's loom

...nor will she stroll
Where leaves cajole
A canopy of leaves
Or linger where
The dust-sweet air
Drips from dawn's tawny eaves

Ah, fare thee well,
We love thy April ways
They set the stage
And turn time's page
To May-June-July days
