A “Sunday” Poem


sunny_daffodils-2

To Daffodils

Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain’d his noon.
Stay, stay,
Until the hasting day
Has run
But to the even-song;
And, having pray’d together, we
Will go with you along.
how-to-fertilize-daffodil
We have short time to stay, as you,
We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay,
As you, or anything.
We die
As your hours do, and dry
Away,
Like to the summer’s rain;
Or as the pearls of morning’s dew,
Ne’er to be found again.

Blush of Spring poem


Blush of Spring by Dawn Crabb (my grandmother)

blush of spring     img-thing

Faint light of day creeps over the hill

Pale moon hides and all is still

Bending blackboys bristle there

Green spears flung to the scented air

Sea of daisies sweeping high

Rainbow riot from the sky

Frogs are silent, birds on the wing

Bushland is calling, the echoes ring

Clumsy fledglings urgently fed

Sunrise a warmth in yellow and red

Towering trees just stand and stare

Lilt of laughter loiters there

Dappled light is dancing through

Neon wear of sparkling dew

Webs dip crazily in stirring breeze

Strung like diamonds, twixt the trees

Scintillating gossamer, silken thread

Adorning the morning for night has fled
