Adieu, sweet springtime... by Cheryl Brooks

What is there to say on this last day of May?
Perhaps a quick ode ere the month slips away.
As I sit here writing, my roses have bloomed.


The lilies will dazzle, but could use lots more room!


I've been on vacation; I even went twice.
The Keys had their charm,


Myrtle Beach was quite nice!


But the Derby is over,


And the Preakness was won.


The Belmont at Elmont is yet to be run.

The Indy 500 was a fabulous race,


And when Tony won, he poured milk on his face. 

But alas, like the month, my post is now done.
For tomorrow brings June with its heat and its fun.

Next summer's vacation? I haven't a clue.
But for some unknown reason,
Only Scotland will do!


Come on, now.
You knew I'd get the hunk in there somewhere. *;) winking

  12. That was a trip of sensory extremes. I'm ready for those other posts on your blog anytime. The Scots in kilts are definitely inspirational ;-)
