Summer Poem: Eurus/Zephyrus/Notus and Rainbows by K.A.McCafferty



Fallen apples, vine leaves tumble
Strawberries bow
Like grief stricken women
As autumn sends her kiss

Eurus carries a child in the white foam
Of his sea
Zephyrus does not hear the cries
Of this tiny refugee

Round by the hut a willow-
tree weeps,  its trunk sodden ‘n’ soft
Pear tree has birthed
Black brambles droop

Holly sighs, berries are born
Robin is happy to steal
Beneath amber leaves hedgehog sleeps
Winter solstice begins

Daffodil’s yolk, days are light
House martins swoop n dance
Hope, unease, aspirations
Pink-footed geese migration

Summer solstice,  June
People ponder and wonder
Dreams desires depleted
They wish they’d never left

The reasons were not clear
They were driven by fear
By those bumbling idiots
Who departed as quick as those geese

Arise Notus
Let him gather you all
Deliver new roots in the north
Concurrently we cannot fail

As the mist disappears
And the warmth zephyr gives way
To bright rays tinted by rainbows
Hopes and dreams unambiguous
Welcome all.
