As a warming Spring sun bathes the waking garden
And prompts the buds and shoots to swell and lengthen,
Green inverted snipped cocktail umbrellas
Make perfect sun-loungers for dozing ladybirds.
But don’t go too close, they might fly away home…
A Perfect Easter Sunday and Birth Anniversary day
Ends with a perfect finale and deep contentment.
Memories to treasure are manifested and
Life feels light and carefree and unburdened.
Delicate golden headed Coltsfoot, mirrors the suns’ radiance
And brook gurgles and babbles through the majestic scenery
Of the Southern Upland hills.
Warm Spring sun-dappled water stroking
Green fern fronds of swaying eel-grass.
Bonnie the dog bounding uninhibited
In and out and up and down,
The joy of living expressed in every sinew.
And just when it seems this cannot get any better,
Mother Nature plays Her trump card
Bathing the earth with the fiery glow
Of the rays of Her setting sun.
