June Morning Song

Ah, sweet June morn, how fair You adorn
The hill and green field in a cloak heaven-spun
Nudging to fruition the rare exhibition
Of wild phlox and peony singing their song

Iris and lupine their clenched pinions open  
We cannot boast now as we view the foray
Of leaf-woven passion exalting fine fashion
From looms spinning blooms in breath-taking array

The trees toss their tresses where spring’s warm caresses
Have clothed naked limbs once the color of mud
We drink in the splendor of June’s verdant grandeur
Goodness and mercy unfurls with each bud

We ought not to worry; even Solomon’s glory
Could never compare to such beauty as this
If God clothes the flowers for their few fair hours
Then surely He cares for precious children of His

Grabbed a few shots of nature's praise while I wandered about the yard this morning. I failed to capture the oriole with his face buried in an orange-half or the purple and gold finches as the flitted to and from the feeders, but the air was filled with their song!

"Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. Luke 12:27


  1. This is beautiful Janet, as are the photos! Perfect for Mary's prompt over at Poetry Jam...if you are interested in linking it.

  2. Thank-you Jen. I sure will enjoy linking up to the poetry sites again someday and also having the time to read other blogs a little more. Right now I'm not linking to any poetry sites because I hate to simply post and run. Thank-you for the sugg. I'll see if I get a chance to link and read later on.

    Have a lovely week-end!

  3. The flowers in your gardens are beautiful!! I love the pinks and purples of spring & early summer :) How's the wedding planning coming along? Think of you often!

  4. Hi Megan:) I think of you often too. I am on the computer very little right now except when searching for wedding ideas. If I answer honestly I have to confess I am feeling extremely over-whelmed. Everyday busyness doesn't stop. I just popped in to double-check on google how far apart to plant beans. They are going out late this year due to very wet spring here.


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit! I welcome and appreciate, if thought you care to speak; the value and the input of compliment or critique
