merry things

the weather is slowly and surely warming up, 
the roses are beginning to bud,
the beets are getting taller -
blooms make merry the table amidst the mess of sewing,
this old recipe is re-discovered and savoured,

on a sunny day we let the nappies and clothes get kissed by the sun,
stand by tiles my lover brought me from marrakech 
(because he knows how I love tiles, morocco and blue and white)

I take baby out into the fresh air to look at sky 
or greenery or post-box interior -
and we're humming round the cherry tree 
cause there's green globes a'growing...


what makes you merry to-day?
