cottage garden blooms
beauty waves her petals, care
for her fragile gifts.

My hanging petals reminded me of a summer poem by the Bard a.k.a. William Shakespeare, and here it is set to music.
Ariel’s Song, from The Tempest, act V, scene 1.
You can also find the poem in the book, If Bees are Few, A Hive of Bee Poems, edited by James P. Lenfestey, and online with a bit of commentary at Shakespeare in Action.
Happy Poetry Friday! My fare is light this week. If you are in an area where summer is flourishing I hope that you are partaking of it with all your senses, while it’s here. I’m fitting in as much plein air painting as I can, and will share some in the near future.
Amazing Molly Hogan is hosting this weeks Poetry Friday Roundup, at her blog Nix the comfort zone, thanks Molly! Stop by her blog for more poetry and perhaps some of her rich photography too.
