Scilla Song

Blue scilla flowers

You should sing the blues,
but your music’s too sweet,
and far too long awaited.
Ah,  your beauty’s a treat.

Note: This song is one of my favorites. My poem is a little love song to spring. I wrote to scilla last year, too, nearly to the day.  I saw my first wild butterfly of the year today, as I sat outside soaking up the sunshine. A white cabbage butterfly winged past me and vanished. I’ve written about them before, too.

  1. I’ve always loved Greensleeves, it’s beautiful melody!♥ I can still hear my brother (as a teenager) playing it on his treble recorder. You really have been celebrating spring with your poems!!! What lovely blue flowers too – are they bluebells? They look a little different to the ones we get in Britain.
