MAY SHE COMES

MAY SHE COMES May she comes, quite boisterous, and so loud. She melts the frost to orbs of liquid dew. From dark of moon returned to full and proud, and waxes bees and moon in breath she drew. Centaurus follows May with eyes of night, while pressing Crux and Virgo into play. She'll gather breeze and scent within her flight, and tuck their luscious song in her bouquet. May comes wooing with her amorous hook, and kisses deep and laughs at each and all. In lustful flirt she holds us with one look, and we're in love with May until the Fall. May she comes, dressed emerald in French lace, Sultry, yet always innocent and chaste. By Edlynn Nau © May 1, 2016

What a delight it is to read this poem that extols the virtues of sweet May. Being a bullish Taurus I may have to save this gem as my Mantra! I love it! Happy birthday my fellow Taurus. Mine was on the third. My daughters took me horseback riding, probably for the last time. Cheers, Connie ; ) #7

Great lines, wonderful flows, indicative of a soul deep mind. An excellent seven well deserved.

Thank you! I'm sorry that I just found this. They no longer send us an Email for each response. Someone said go to Soup Mail & push buttons. I couldn't find where to go! So I have to randomly check poems. I want to thank you for your review & I am just delighted that you enjoyed this!

Thank you for the greeting, YOUR GREAT COMMENTS and encouragement. I'm so glad I found you again. I will be catching up with your poetry once I get past this week of celebration! Ha! I think I'm going to need to tape my ankles for this week! €;-D

Oh we MUST have an ode to May mustn't we? Thank you for your visit. I think I'm getting back in it to avoid quantum mechanic proofs! Ha ha ha. That will make anyone suddenly unblocked. After this busy weekend...I'm back visiting all of you. So bring your game!

THIS IS AN AUTOMATIC FAV POEM FOR ME. Brings to me memories of lost poems, burned to ashes and life long ago dispirited and heaped into a sack. The she that did that to me, walked in moonlight and shone brighter than the sun. I, never saw the hot burn coming.. As love can be paradise or descend into a living hell on a mere whim.. Super A7

Thank you and I am delighted. May try some other genres too! Just stretching my wings...one day I hope to fly!

The follow-up to your first sonnet is equally lovely and a delight to read, Edlynn. I could so easily fall for this May of yours...honeyed, flirty and with a promise of love. #7 I can imagine you getting hooked on sonnets:) ~ Regards // paul

Thank you for giving it a read! I am just trying a new genre as we all should (or must)! I thought it would be dull and the Maths seemed uninteresting. However, it lends itself to an intriguing form for story and for rhyme. I see why it has lasted so long.
