Beltaine’s Springtime

Blooming apples and hawthorns, sweet aromas fill the air;
Springtime’s blossoms white as snow now gone,
Fresh as the dew, the fragrances waft past my nose,
Aromas on the breeze, carrying birdsongs to my ears…

Tree buds of pale yellow-greens and bronzes,
As looking down the woods, my eyes do explore,

Birds, they are nesting, squirrels bearing their young,
Perhaps some of our Clan will bear child come Imbolc,
When festivities of Beltaine become full of the passion,

Renewal, hope and promise of new life,
Things will continue for the Earth, forgetful of mankind’s strife…

Returning to the trailhead, sun’s orb low and glowing orangey-pink,
White dogwoods blooming, peep frogs noisily singing,
As geese settle onto the water, ending their day,
So, as with Nature’s wildlife, shall my dog, and I…
