In May


The sounds of May,
Sunlight crescendos,
More eagerly birds frolic;
Even louder than days preceding.

Bouquets of carnations,
Deep reds, pinks, whites;
Petal by petal aligned,
To patiently queued buyers.

The taste of a toast,
Of sparkling wine from,
Vineyards vast and distant;
No harried haste to savor.

Swirling strips,
Furls of hemlines,
A folk tradition ebbs;
The whirligig of paper confetti.

More than twenty blackbirds,
Trip lightly through the grass,
Seeking out micro food;
Only a grackle's beak will tweak.

Beginning May, May day;
Of yester years echoes,
In procession labour,
Silent wreaths adorn their struggle.

    The sounds of May: Sunlights crescendos, echoes, blackbirds and even the bouquets of flowers make some types of inaudible murmurs of beauty.
