Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

May's Come Lately.


Dancing with greenest
Of fresh-leaved dress,
The trees have awakened
Come lately, - - - shook
Down their winter-drab,
Roots loosened, new tresses
Bob lightly in warm spring.
This year Maytime took
Longer to show, but she's
Come, - - - floating white
Train trailing her blossoms.
Each hedgerow ablaze
With petaling snow - - -
Faintly scented, - - - alight
And glowing, - - May's bridal
Show is - - amazing.
What more cause for delight
Than, - - - come lately
Another revival
To which we relate?

    Wow! Very artfully portrayed the Incoming May though
    late but still feels pleasant. The ecology seems to have
    uplifted itself enchanting the surroundings.....10/10 (Report) Reply

    Such a celebration of flowing welcoming imagery for May's late arrival. The first two lines
    danced with me to find blossoms, petaling snow, a bridle show and so much more. How you made my heart sing with happiness Fay. Top marks! Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
