Early Flowers

Thy fingers make early flowers
of all things.
thy hair mostly the hours love:
a smoothness which
(though love be a day)
do not fear, we will go amaying.
– E.E. Cummings

Even as the rain romances,
after all these swollen glances,
let’s just take our stolen chances;
and crown ourselves with ribbon dances.

(though love be a day
and life be nothing,it shall not stop kissing).  
– E.E. Cummings

Happy May Day! And WHEW, to all who finished a strong poeming April!
Prompted by Toads

  4. What a delightful treat, De. Such a beautiful sound. Like Rosemary suggests, simply irresistible. I can totally dance to this… and the dancing will include a lot of hip. 😀

    This sounds very good, De. Your rhyme is great too! I’m ready to dance and haven’t even gotten into romance yet. 🙂
