Mayfly Poem Example

The County

Summer’s golden blade does thrust
its effervescent golden musk,
and into  wheaten fields’ did trust,
a volley of  ethereal rust, 
caught by tempered, evening gust

Cart and horse they trot out forth,
spilling damsels, on the stones,
clouds and mayfly drift off  north,
bees for nectar send out drones,
later, honey over scones

Weary orchestra of light, 
dips its day that comes to dusk,
all’s not well that ends in night
spins the web, the prisoner’s husk,
spider drinks the tasty rusk

And when the season’s hunting horn,
cries the chase to fox in den,
master, hound and prey forlorn,
skip by waltzing weazels ten;
like scented breeze, on watery fen
