A Riverside

The chestnuts are in full flower with white candles and sycamores sound with bees,
Grass is knee deep and full of wild beautiful flowers the old dog rose climbs a post,
There are cowslips swaying gently in corners of a lime green meadow and glades,
Cowslips retire at the end of May their days are now over and its time say goodbye.

Blackberry bushes burst into flower protected by hard twisting stems of sharp thorns,
Silky masses of grass grows higher around the hedges of each glade than in the field,
Sitting on a bank by a river it’s rushing a dirty brown from an earlier heavy rainstorm,
Grey shrubbery rocks hide in long grass with hundreds of swallows singing overhead.

Nests are found in trees and bushes guarded by jealous mum’s who watch everything,
Lapsing waters carrying floating blossoms delight wildlife, birds swoop down to catch some,
The blossoms of the many apple trees are over and blow away in a sweet may breeze,
Again the blossom floats on the water quickly out of sight heading towards the open sea.

A quince in full bloom with its pale flowers and yellow leaves sways in the mellow wind,
The weather is warm not too hot just right for a long stroll along a riverbank at midday,
Walk in rich green grass that has been walked on for hundreds of years picking flowers,
Wander over to a copse of trees hiding bluebells and white bells a secret not to be shared.
