May Flowers

They say that April showers

Bring May flowers.

I think that this may be true,

But only if violets are blue.

Perhaps a vase of weeping willow

Bent in sorrow o’er a dampened pillow.

Between Mother’s Day

And the day of your birth

May can tend to be low in mirth.

You’ve been gone now for years and years.

It’s not fresh. I’m not often awash in tears.

But if there is going to be a time when I weep,

I can safely say it’ll be this week.
