June


June burst forth with sunshine blest
Buds awakening on the stem of trees
Life awakens like a treasure chest
And butterflies flutter in the breeze.

Cygnets follow in line astern their mother,
And other ducks swim along with pride
Ducklings bobbing in the water, one behind the other
In shimmering lakes and rivers country-wide.

Weeping willows gracefully kiss the water’s edge
Their leaves blowing gently in the wind
Gaggling geese chatting as they sit on the ledge
And the old man sitting on a bench just grinned.

Dog walkers with their pets strolling on the grass,
Mum’s with babe’s in pushchairs following on behind,
Joggers running round and round trying hard to pass.
All enjoying the June sunshine away from the daily grind.

    June heralds the beginning of Summer.
    With it's fresh spring flowers, glowing
    sunshine and wafting warm breezes.
    Ah! The joy of it all! A good write.

    You're right val. A signet is a smal seal used for stamping documents. Thats where signet ring comes from. Well spotted. (Report) Reply

    Lovely seasonal poem David. May I be so bold as to point out you have misspelled 'signets' - should be cygnets. Doesn't detract from the beauty of your poem, of course - just me being a spelloholic! (Report) Reply
