The Temperate Month of May



Season of renewal and showers
Boasts trees of leaves and blossoming flowers.
Opening up green, yellow and red,
For warbler perch and honeybee spread.

Amorous advances by trill sing.
And enticing blooms beckon, “Come drink!”
There in the meadow where sun rays beam,
And in the thickets down by the stream.

Rain livens the arisen spirit.
To conduct the ensemble lyric,
Of the traditional Spring display,
In the temperate month of May.

“Bravo!” I cheer from under the umbrella,
As audience to nature’s phenomena.
