Amanda Jane Yates Poems
Just an arm and a half away I saw six tortoiseshell butterflies Feeding on clusters of purple flowers.
Nature's bounty knows no bound. Round us trees with wealth are crowned. All in jewelled green are gowned.
Chattering, giggling on she goes Over the rocks and down the hill From the spring she has drunk her fill. Bubbling, tinkling along she flows On her back a leaf she carries Swift and sure she never tarries.
Mighty fortress made out of stone. Home where the Queen Bee has her throne. Hear the hum of daily toil. Timeless work that naught can spoil.
The full moon rises this is the night Faeries to the woodland Ho! Come all to your monthly commote court. Lit by your own incandescent glow.
It Scares me Quite witless When I know that
Scorching red And icy blue Mixed in harmony. Energise or calm
And icy blue
Mixed in harmony.
Energise or calm
Balance your spirit.
Colour of kings,
Sages and sorcerers.
Regal and mystical,
Lets imagination fly.
Lavender and violet.
Sweet and serene.
Rest and ruminate
Their soothing petals.
