May Hip-hooray Hip-Hip For-May


PAD Challenge day 24:
Closing in on the finish line of another April Poem-A-Day Challenge, so today I’m upping the stakes for anyone who wants an extra challenge!

For today’s Two-for-Tuesday prompt:
  1. Write a roundelay. Guidelines here. Or…
  2. Write an anti-form poem.

 Some snippets of spent May-day Hip-hoorays! (and my first attempt at writing a roundelay)







 Ontario-ans are pinning their hopes on May for a big "hip-hip-hooray" when it comes to weather!

Earth dons a robe fit for a king
The orchard dons pink-petal gilt
The bud dons bloom where robins sing
The meadow-brook dons silver lilt
The heart dons hope once more as spring
Tucks winter ‘neath a flower-quilt

The bud dons bloom where robins sing
The meadow-brook dons silver lilt
The woodland’s lofty belfries ring
With hymns that broken bud-harps spilt
The heart dons hope once more as spring
Tucks winter ‘neath a flower-quilt

The woodland’s lofty belfries ring
With hymns that broken bud-harps spilt
Across the dross of death grace flings
A breath of life to dreams rebuilt
The heart dons hope once more as spring
Tucks winter ‘neath a flower-quilt

Across the dross of death grace flings
A breath of life to dreams rebuilt
Earth dons a robe fit for a king
The orchard dons pink-petal gilt
The heart dons hope once more as spring
Tucks winter ‘neath a flower-quilt
