verdant emerald green grass below,
lush shrubs and trees covered with
leaves, fruit and flowers enfolding,
rain plentiful from the skies above,
citrine yellow sunshine caresses the land.
enter into a celebratory festival of fertility
the sapphire queen of the mid-May
presiding over the activities~
dancing, blessing and conjuring for
an abundant summer harvest,
flitting about from plant to stem to leaf
her gentle kisses coaxing new growth~
buttercup flowers bloom
royal purple buds appear
ruby berries glistening~
greater cause to celebrate this mid-May.
