We Lay in Clover

Inhaling scent of heather and each blossomed spray Surrounding us that warm clear springtime day, We lay in clover, with our eyes on a bouquet - White, wooly blooms - the wild blue yonder’s grand display! Those flower-clouds went softly drifting; by and by They changed into a valentine so very high Above us in the heaven’s perfect azure sky, As if a prelude to romance. . . . to make us sigh! Then like two children savoring a sweet parfait, We stayed deliciously engaged in passion play Until disheveled, and our hair in disarray, We heard above us in a tree, a squawking jay! He seemed to want to split us up; we’d not comply! And even now, I yearn to be where you and I Both pledged a love that man or God could not defy. Alas, we never guessed our spring could ever die! Andrea Dietrich Summer, 2010 For the Contest of Poet ~ Destroyer Spring~ Any poem about SPRING~ (new or old) Poetry Contest
