Monthly poem - April 2019

THE BLOSSOM TREES ARE ASLEEP

The blossom trees are asleep
dreaming of wild bees,
the wind softly repeating.

There are brides tumbling
into wide blue skies,
in fields, first lambs are bleating.

Turn, turn, in your broderie anglaise
Muses cherry, hawthorn and plum,
your moments are so fleeting.

The birds wake them
pecking at buds;
the heart of Spring is beating.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
