May Poems

This month we couldn’t make our minds up … so we have got two poems for you !


"A Garden in Spring" by Helen Allingham


First a short verse by Heinrich Heine


Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on.




Then this lovely verse by Thomas Hood


‘Tis like the birthday of the world,
When earth was born in bloom;
The light is made of many dyes,
The air is all perfume:
There’s crimson buds, and white and blue,
The very rainbow showers
Have turned to blossoms where they fell,
And sown the earth with flowers.




"Spring Blossoms" from the Pears Annual, 1902 by William Stephen Coleman
