Roses have thorns and silver fountains mud,
Clouds and eclipses stain both moon and sun,
And loathsome canker lives in sweetest bud.
[lines 2,3&4 from sonnet 35 by William Shakespeare]

right over me….
A Bird from Greece
Appeared over the way
Winter’s Golden Bird
Gill McGrath© tonight at 4 (caught on the end of that line!)
where yesterday the dark painted sun shone
in a lighter shade of pink
violet rose and saffron play today
along a lighter line of indigo
a golden bird sits
on the lichen roof
counting to the rhythm
seen there in the mists
beyond those trees

Up there in the rain!
A Rather magnificent prune

….in purple lit shadows
While the Faerie caravan moves on
Towards some new stopping place.
Dressed up in robes and tiny crowns
These funny flying things
Do hide their wings
So they can pull their toadstool on its course….
Then dragging slow a sort of worn out faerie horse!
