Summer Rain

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Can you smell the summer rain
As it trickles, trickles, trickles down
Washing away the grime and stain
Appeasing the thirsty ground.

The Sound of Night

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Listen to the whisper of crisp autumn leaves
Where by design, He magnificently weaves
An aria of sweet music for the weary soul
Void of silence broken as darkness slows.

As he floats from flower to flower
Storing pollen on his knees
Seeking bounty under the bower.

Daisy Love

As I pluck each tender blade
From this beautiful daisy
He loves me, He loves me not
I ask, am I sane or indeed crazy?

Nature’s thrash-metal show

by Jem Croucher

A clue when the sun
hides away from the day
and the mugginess grows
as the sky becomes grey
Then, as evening approaches
a splatter of rain
It looks like a storm
is brewing again

A rumble of thunder
as the night-time comes round
But in the gaps and the stillness
there’s barely a sound

Green Four

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
and green’s the next in line
The fourth one in the rainbow
and one that’s very fine

For it speaks to me of life itself
and the good things oft bestowed
on each of us ‘most every day
from all that nature grows

Produce (aka ‘Allotment V’)

by Jem Croucher

Imagine our amazement
when this evening on Ham Field
we discovered our allotment
had delivered its first yield
Some courgettes and a squash or two
which in the sunshine haven’t lingered
Leading us to think that we
may well be quite green-fingered!
