Comments about Pat Tisdall
Summer (From 'Beyond Eden' And 'The Seasons')
When laughing Summer leaps across the lea,
And May and June are chased by bold July
Along the hedgerow, where the butterfly
Displays the beauty of its symmetry,
And where suspended in the sun's warm rays
The darting hoverfly with silence plays;
When listless leaves hang from the chestnut tree,
And Spring's lush grass has turned to summer'd hay
Beside the rutted lane where badgers stray,
And watchful weasels lift hills by the stile,
Where thistle seeking finches pause awhile;
When sapphire kingfishers flash silently
Above the river ...
