After the storm azalea perfumes
the lawn yellow., the bay tree
curtseys low,the copper stirs
and a firecrest alights upon
the smoke tree. Butterflies return
to sun,weed covers the pond,here
and there  the ceanthus coloured blue
stops the honey bee in its tracks.Ivy
climbs the wall un noticed,the peony
all dressed in white fragrants the air.
