she’s all uppity, in her bright april sky

spring’s got the bothers again,
her bloom
all up in a tither, 
scattered hither-and-yon 
with yawn of breeze. 

she’s got trees to woo,
things to do, 
bees to boo into buzz. 

sunshine’s waiting
for her to 
hex and vex 
that startled stolen sky. 

The Quadrille’s mine over at dVerse this week. Come play!

    This is absolutely gorgeous, De! 😀 So much to love here especially; “her bloom-ers all up in a tither, scattered hither-and-yon with yawn of breeze.”💝💝

    A sweet spring quadrille, De, which makes me glad we bother to write them. I love the play on ‘bloom – ers’!

  3. You should see me smiling reading this… really love how you portray miss April with her bloomers 🙂

    This is lovely, De. So much packed into the short form.

  5. Ingrid says:

    Spring is almost as busy as the bees. I love ‘blushbudcry’ – great coinage!

  6. Love it, love it .. vex and hex the startled stolen sky …. oh yes!

    “her bloom
    -ers” … Love this line break. ❤

    Also this as a single word:

    Sigh. So gorgeous.

    “Hex” and “vex” are definitely on my favorite-words list.
