May

May

Oh coquettish child
You spring shy maiden
Peeping through the skirts of April
Wistful for your perfect sunrise
~
Primrose mornings, distant, fading
Sighs of falling daffodils
Tulip lips form pouting kisses
To the old and knowing sun
~
Stretching days,
Spiced with cut grass
Avenues shed their blossom bonnets
Petal rain on gentle winds
~
And what of we
Your nursery playthings
Laughing as you twist our senses
Confusing time with thoughts of summer
