Nights In May

Nights in May are so seductive, 
they make you wait for hours 
in that glorious stage light
from the west,
before they deign to rise 
onto the stage of the quite 
brief performance of their artistry. 

Their breath is balmy, laden
with that blend of all the 
fragrances they steal 
from blossoms, 
which coquettishly they 
wear like laces fastened 
round some young girl’s thighs. 

In May the nights flirtatiously 
wink at you with sparks  
they like to borrow 
from the stars,  
they expertly employ the
moon to highlight the smooth
shapes of budding lush fertility.

They cradle you in night-blue arms
arousing wishes rather than 
lulling you to sleep, till 
from the east
 pale heralds will approach
to make them organize their exit 
accompanied by the birds’ symphony.
