May Day

by Jem Croucher


Sun rises golden, gleaming
Over Sussex field
Heralding the first of May
Its glory is revealed
Silence reigns, the world awakes
Slumber fades and here
Through the green of leafy bough
The sunshine brings us cheer

There’s frosting on the dew-clad grass
But rising now as mist
There is no greater wonder
than the spectacle of this
A kaleidoscope of colour
Arrives with breaking dawn
A privilege to witness
On this early summer morn
