To Celebrate spring i also thought i would share one of my poems with you all. I hope you like it.
I Dream of May
(c)J. Macfarlane 2007
In the gloom of winter, I dream of May,
awaiting her touch as she passes this way.
A whisper of warm breath in my hair,
as the May breeze, caresses me there.
Blooming May, like an expectant mother
brimming with beauty, unlike any other.
Softly and suggestively she delivers hope,
of fresh beginnings and new ways to cope.
Earth in May, sports a velvet green gown,
shimmering with dew under a misty down.
Trees are bursting , proud fat and healthy.
Magnificent Oak’s are once again wealthy.
A square field of corn, like buttermilk on gold,
guarded by wild hedges, soldiers, bold.
Hide and seek rabbits playing at dawn,
darting and weaving at the edge of the corn.
May blesses with a kiss, the mysterious wood,
carpeting where once, winter shadows stood.
She sprinkles her magic in most vibrant blues,
with delicate little bluebells in lilac tone hues.
Oh how I dream of May’s maternal embrace.
To bathe in the warmth of early sun on my face.
To walk barefoot and feel the grass on my skin,
inhaling moist woody aroma, deeply within
