The Yellow

Underneath the canopy
the yellow on the ground
the changing of the seasons
as autumn comes around
The beauty at this time of year
takes my breath away
enraptured by the wonder
on this fine October day

The Zest

Resplendent the yellow
the daisy-like smiles
Their zest keeps me going
for miles and miles
Like a tonic for life
from fair nature’s hand
on the path that’s before me
across this great land

And wherever I go
the zest I will see
be it there in a flower
or a shrub or a tree
The essence of life
so perfectly free
is there for the taking
and all around me

You can never have too much yellow

You can never have too much yellow
for it’s the colour of the sun
And I’d challenge you to disagree
it’s not loved by everyone

For me that’s going to be the case
for as long as I can see
For it’s synonymous with summer
Where I so love to be

Dahlias

Yellow, bright and lovely
Three words, though there are more
To capture what the Dahlia
each summer has in store

Basking in the sunshine
They’ll always turn a head
From every one who passes by
this gorgeous flowerbed

Sunflower

Sun by name and sun by nature
yellow petals show
Sunflower turns its pretty head
to every sunshine glow

But even when it hides itself
and clouds above are grey
The sunflower there reminds us
that it will not be long away

Yellow Three

Seven colours, seven days
Yellow’s here today
The third one in the rainbow
and my favourite, I’d say

For with it comes a promise
for the summer and the sun
And the warmth of its magnificence
that I will never shun

Part 3 of 7 – ‘The rainbow series’

Yellow Iris

Yellow by the water
Waving in the breeze
Brought me to a standstill
Took me to my knees

Their beauty was resplendent
and a tear came to my eye
as I stood beside the lake
with a deep contented sigh
