May Days...

Yesterday we were reminded that winter still hovers in the fringes, but today May returns to more seasonal form.

The trees wear green, lace dresses
The breeze, a satin shawl
The gleaming hill caresses
Blue-heaven madrigals

The brook, a laughing love-song
Each nook and dell a plot
Where lolls the daffodil with
Blue-eyed forget-me-not

Dawn is a golden posy
Noon is a butterfly
Dusk lingers, lush and rosy
Where violet vespers sigh

Hope finds orchard-havens
Clothes the scraggly limb
With the blush of blossoms
Yonder woodlands brim

…with nature’s gladdest singing
As praise to heaven rings
For the kind refurbishing
Of earth’s long-hidden springs
