Mother Nature (3) – Bluebell

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

For day three it is the bluebell
another flower of Spring
which with new growth in April
many promises will bring

A little peel of little bells
A chime to mark the hour
that winter’s lost its hold on us
and summer has the power

Mother Nature (2) – Forsythia

Celebrating nature over
seven vibrant days
Her hand of wonder covered
in seven different ways

Day two and it’s Forsythia
which gets a special mention
for ‘yellow’ has to feature here
and was always my intention

Vibrant colour in early Spring
when the year has just begun
Gives promise of the future
and long days of warming sun

December blossom

There’s blossom in the bushes
even though it’s now December
And I know it’s been quite warm of late
but you’d think it would remember
That winter sun although still bright
deceives with days of chill
and Spring is several months away
with quite some waiting still
Don’t get me wrong though, I’m quite pleased
to see these buds of pink
I’m just surprised and know the chill
will stop their growth I think

Sultry

Mid May and springtime evenings
with warmth still in the air
left over from the sunshine
that has been shining there

Walking through the city streets
A sultry feeling here
It is a pleasure knowing
that the summertime is near

And it has a certain nuance
you have to feel to know
when you simply have to wander
take your time and just be slow

Jolly Early

It’s awfully jolly early
to be up on a weekend
But we’re off (us two) to London
to visit an old friend
And as we’re paid up members
we get an early special tour
There before the crowds get in
what our membership is for

So we left the house at five o’clock
caught the red-eye up the line
At Victoria just after seven
just at breakfast time
Then a quick tube down to Pimlico
for David Hockney at the Tate
arriving a bit early
as we don’t like being late

Later on we’ll take the boat
down the Thames a little way
Tate Modern down on Southbank
getting there around midday
And then when we have had our fill
of both galleries I guess
that we’ll partake of something nice
at a restaurant no less

Still later we might take a stroll
by the riverbank a while
Taking in the city sights
for around about a mile
And finally we’ll catch a tube
on the District/Circle line
Leaving London in mid afternoon
to get home by suppertime

That bluebell time

It’s that bluebell time again
they come up every year
Around the end of April time
when the summer time is near

We seem to have a bumper crop
which is fine my me, I’d say
Particularly as they last a while
At least well into May

They’re protected now in England
so we’re really pleased by that we
can promulgate that here by leaving
our bluebells to be

April Sunshine

A cream tea with scones
in April sunshine
Temperatures rising
and everything’s fine

Flowers are blooming
with scent on the air
Springtime takes hold
with substance and flair

And I’m in my element
now it has begun
Relaxed in the warmth
that comes from the sun
