yellow, the famous arch .
i came to see the kitchen garden,
seeds growing, chives flowering.
humble plant sprout small mauve flowers,
bees come early.
yesterday mostly yellow and mauve then.
we talked of chickens, the coops, the wire,
brought me a specimen of lime mortar, held
with horse hair from the old wall. we
placed it, discussed lime, the burning,
and carried on.
made a pointy thing, will burn our
irons in the fire.
day of industry, company, winds
bent the rest of us, so we
followed the road to find
the light is coming through.

while all round is stormimg,

when it is a cruise ship, waving.
what do you think when passengers

do you know that it is june,
and that it seemed to have come quickly,
while we weren’t looking.

for the sun. which will come.

the last day of may.
