Monthly poem - July

July 2017
Flat faced July
Let me dance
On the umbels of your sloping days!
Blue stars of borage
Are catching the light
As bees tunnel up foxglove sleeves.
Bricks are thick with fallen roses
And girls from Jane Austen's time
Rustle through the summer air
While ghosts of the Russian Revolution
Leave their calling cards
Upon the empty garden chair.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
