I wrote this poem in celebration of the wonderful selection of wildflowers nature displays in the Summer. I hope you enjoy this excerpt.
Flowers of Summer
Lady’s mantle sparkling with dew,
Speedwell shining an iridescent blue.
Shepherds purse speckled with white,
Lilac and gold, the tiny eyebright.
Gallant soldier and meadowsweet,
Honeysuckle balmy and sweet.
Slender thistle with purple blooms,
Yellow hues from hawkweed and brooms.
Colourful names with hues so bright
Light up our world with dazzling delight.
Exquisite fragrance fills the air,
An artist’s palette for all to share...
