Sage blooming
Sage – By Andrea Connolly


May Queen

19th May 2016


Oat bran sprinkled on pebbles

Quagmired thoughts sink in

Of lost earthen ware & time


Sage starts blooming in the wind

The bird house waits aground

Blue-tits cling to wires & walls


Stray seeds in Alice blue

Where ringdoves roam

Spread gently behind the sleepers


Empty lies the lair of quails

I save up my new pen

For enterprises Dutch delft


Blush pink carnation adorn

The clutter on the kitchen table

Tea beckons to be brewed in tins


The eight against cold

The “fishbone tea” of four

Lancelot plantain & Lady´s mantle
