Irish spring

Spring came suddenly this year
it might have been your smile
the sadness in your eye
the way you understood
just how love might be.

Yes spring came leaping up to me
trees encrusted green
smell of hybrid earth
colours bursting through
as if the whole of nature knew

you fell in love with me.

I can’t say how summer might be
the yellow of rape seed
the blue scarf of the sea
the rustling of wheat field
painting candy coloured dreams

that echo through the years
of this first spring.
