Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty


..the welcome

calm befriended,
a symphony of petals
fans our capes
and our bemused smiles
welcome this garden sublime

a shilfie  -
sae colourfou
a expeck it tae threip

a chaffinch  -
so colourful
I expect it to speak

..cheer, cheer

spur on,
the lavender's thrusting call
mere no contender
in the parochial garden—
but cheer, cheer, this forthrightness

Flying through the fence
Robin chases his lover
(Who just won't be caught)

..sombre shoot

sombre shoot,
speak of it to me—
each time
the earth surrenders
teach me beloved
