May Blossom ©

Fife, Scotland

Like maidens in cream dresses
The hedgerow catches my eye
Here and there like a prima ballerina
A solitary tree bows and dips
Fronts of frothy May blossom
Like the white swan of the lake

"Many haws make many snaws"
"Ne’er cast a cloot till May be oot"
Folklore maybe but worthy of mention
Food is promised for the song birds
But for now before me
I see the icing on the cake

Hedgerows round the Fife roads
Some beech in its bright greenness
Mostly hawthorn trimmed at the side
Reaching her arms towards the sun
The scent of summer all around
A safe haven for sparrows to roost
