That lavender time again VI

Every year my lavender
features on this day
The twenty-third of each July
no matter, come what may

For this as each year passes
is that lavender time again
celebrating harvest time
from sunshine and the rain

And culminating in
this fragrance so divine
which comes from all the lavender
I pick around this time

‘That lavender time again’ is a theme recurring on an annual basis when, on 23rd July, I publish a new poem in the series. Here are trackbacks to the previous outings – (2020), (2019), (2018), (2017) & (2016)

Lavender for a smile

Yes, I know it looks lovely
in the sunshine out there
But, cropped now its fragrance
is filling the air
So, for double the pleasure
I have a lavender pile
Whilst outside there’s new growth
with crop two for a smile

That lavender time again

I’m capturing the summer
on this fine sunshine day
With a little bit of lavender
to keep the blues away
Cropped this year’s first harvest
into baskets there to dry
but there’s plenty more still growing
to keep me satisfied
It’s something that I always do
around this time of year
And gladly with a smile and
an abundance of good cheer
