Queen Ann's Lace

The August fields all fallow now. The sweet grasses lay long a bed. The posies taken the pastours’ bowe. Brash breezes brush Queen Ann’s fair head. Black butterflies crest crown instead. Tufts of purple clover hold court, ‘neath a spread of pristine comfort. Honey beis are swarmin’ in delight. Sparrows’sweet song the morn transport. Summers’ day passes in tae night.

Deb, I love this poem. I can see and smell the late summer fields full of Queen Ann's lace and clover. My grandmother had a field like this near her house that we used to run through when I was a young girl. Thanks for bringing that memory back for me through your poem. Krista

Hi Deb, The fields that surround my home are covered in Queen Anne Lace and purple thistle. When I take my wee dog for her morning walk, I find myself stopped just gazing at the beauty of it all. You have caputred and painted it in words. Love, Lainie
