Making All The Summer Sweet

Making All The Summer Sweet


Garden Poem of the Day

May is Building Her House
By Richard Le Gallienne

May is building her house. With apple blooms 
She is roofing over the glimmering rooms; 
Of the oak and the beech hath she built its beams, 
And, spinning all day at her secret looms, 
With arras of leaves each wind-swayed wall 
She pictureth over, and peopleth it all 
With echoes and dreams, 
And singing of streams.

May is building her house of petal and blade; 
Of the roots of the oak is the flooring made, 
With a carpet of mosses and lichen and clover, 
Each small miracle over and over, 
And tender, travelling green things strayed.

Her windows the morning and evening star, 
And her rustling doorways, ever ajar 
With the coming and going 
Of fair things blowing, 
The thresholds of the four winds are.

May is building her house. From the dust of things 
She is making the songs and the flowers and the wings; 
From October's tossed and trodden gold 
She is making the young year out of the old; 
Yea! out of winter's flying sleet 
She is making all the summer sweet, 
And the brown leaves spurned of November's feet 
She is changing back again to spring's.
