Beltane garden

May morning sun blesses the day 
While I walk amongst the garden blooms 
Admiring the Mother’s handiwork 
Woven on dear nature’s loom. 
Trees standing tall, branches outstretched, 
Limber arms reaching towards the sky, 
Leaves of olive, emerald and mauve – 
Quiv’ring with the song of life. 
Long-stemmed bell flowers, cupped flowers 
And broad clusters of flowers aflame, 
Blossoming yellow, white, lilac, red, 
Grow up from the Earth untamed. 
Chickadee and blackbird take turns 
To call from the thorny hedge, unseen. 
Butterfly brushes the dew away 
From grass sharp and brightest green. 
May morning sun blesses my day 
While I walk amongst the garden blooms 
Admiring our Mother’s handiwork 
Woven on sweet nature’s loom.
