Twelve months four

No.9 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months’ series

Here’s to the humble daisy
as April comes at last
Perhaps now the sun will shine
with winter months now past
Goodness knows, we need it
coats and jumpers need a rest
for now it’s time for warmer things
and times we love the best
So, welcome first of April
and with the daisy may you bring
the sunshine we have waited for
to give us cause to sing

Twelve months ten

No 3. of 12 in the ‘Twelve Months’ series

With Marigold a marriage
at this turning time of year
The summer to the autumn
as the cooler days draw near
October’s flower magnificent
It’s colour bold and strong
brings to life this marriage
in a cheerful autumn song

Twelve months nine

No.2 of 12 in the ‘Twelve Months’ series

One-day respite for September
the month of nine is here
A birthstone of pure sapphire
and a message which is clear
It’s flower of birth – Forget-me-not
and Morning Glory too
Synonymous with sunshine
Summer’s end here to bestrew
