Blue

bluebells
haze is all around
in every view

bluebells
on the verges
in every hedgerow

bluebells
blooming
in all gardens

bluebells
growing wild
in the woods

bluebells
covering the ground
everywhere you look

love bluebells
 this is a blue year
in Cornwall

Crafty Green Poet: I cannot keep from saying 'oh my gosh' and more as I see
yet another blue patch - it is so glorious.

Al said...

Sometimes I miss those English hedgerows, it's so dry here there's nothing like that. Great blue poem, but it doesn't make me blue!

Out on the prairie said...

I don't see them as much as where my other homee is.I love to see them in mass

The Owl Wood said...

Lines that are short, sweet and blue to match the bluebells!

Nancy said...

Bluebells -- *sigh* :)

the cuby poet said...

John Gray: How could you feel blue amongst all this glorious blue?

the cuby poet said...

Al; English hedgerows are lovely to see but I think that Cornish ones surpass all others!

the cuby poet said...

Out on the prairie: There are so many here that it is almost overwhelming both in scent and sight. Lucky.

the cuby poet said...

The Owl wood: There didn't need to be any elaboration, the words say all that is required.

the cuby poet said...

Nancy: So right. :)

Hi There, I'm trying to catch up a little after being gone.. Hope you are doing fine.

Love the BLUES of Spring... Beautiful pictures... Bluebells remind me of our Texas Bluebonnets here a little...

Evlyn said...

Bluebells are one of my favourite flowers, but I have never seen them in such great masses as they appear in your photo. How wonderful. Your poem is a lovely homage to the way they fill the landscape with their colour.

the cuby poet said...

Betsy from Tennessee: Great that you popped by and enjoyed BLUE.

the cuby poet said...

Mitchell is moving: The blue haze is everywhere and not for too long so it has to be enjoyed for the moment.

the cuby poet said...

CherryPie: Isn't it just great? X

the cuby poet said...

Evlyn: The masses are what makes this flower so special this year. So glad you could share my enjoyment.

Jim said...

Heaven! Enjoy it!

the cuby poet said...

Jim; Oh how could I do anything else?
Thanks.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh I love bluebells too. I tried to grow them once, but they didn't take.

My bluebells have just started to open their buds! But today the sun shone.
