she’s all uppity, in her bright april sky

spring’s got the bothers again,
her bloom
-ers 
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 
blushbudcry; 
hex and vex 
that startled stolen sky. 

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

    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.

    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:
    “blushbudcry”

    Sigh. So gorgeous.

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