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?

    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
