Yellow II

IMGP6365

Yellow things are mostly there
to serve as a reminder
the fact that summer’s almost here
and is going to be a blinder!

There’s yellow in those daffodils
that arrive in early Spring
and yellow in that forsythia
with all the joy it brings.

There’s yellow in the sunshine
midst the cloudy days that pass
and yellow in the buttercups
and dandelions in the grass

There’s yellow all around me
A summer smile for every day
So I’m really looking forward to
the warmer yellow born of May

    I’m hoping that this is more prescience than wishful thinking, Jem.

    The entire piece is delightful – so full of the attentiveness of a true poet – but this last, closing stanza – is just heartwarming 😀

    I adore that last line – so dreamy – and you have captured the essence of yellow actually being warmer in May!

    Brilliant Gem, Jem! 😉
