for Elaine and Vic
Sitting on a fallen tree,
two hearts of gold smile at me
and all the world becomes a song,
as love and bird sing all day long.
Hush listen to their hearts a-flutter,
as memory moves to early summer
where May recalls her happy hour,
a dance amid pale yellow flowers!
And as I spy behind the oak
a pen falls from my poet’s cloak,
for never have I seen such love
that sits beside the tall foxglove!
A woodland dream to be written
in silky strands of yellow ribbon,
while bluebirds sing their farewell song
the fading sun shines not so strong.
As green and gold fit like a glove,
a raven changes for a dove,
and golden light falls endlessly
as Goddess leans in blessedly.
Wait awhile my dear Green Man,
while May ignites her heartfelt plan,
here let us love all over again,
from bud to flower to leaf we’ll reign.
