Changing Seasons

Double Shakespearean Sonnet Contest Winner 

A bluebell spread her carpet by the wood,
and sprayed her fetching-perfume through the glade.
Her place beneath the tree was understood.
So delicate, her dress preferred the shade.

The winter; once 
her favored time of year,
grew petticoats of starched and snowy-white.
Her pleats would watch the moonlit owls revere
the badger's blaze for 
moths to land at night.

But then one cold and chilly Christmas morn,
poor Lily from the valley; down below,
contracted bitter bites by frost at dawn.
To Spring -- she packed her bags with bells in tow.

Her petals turned to blue; the stain of tears,
which left a constant ringing in her ears...


Now randy Dandy couldn't give a damn.
A lion full of pride and manly needs.
He sowed his yellow genes throughout the land,
to gardens laid with lawn, he stuck his seeds.

Beside the oaks and elms away from cold,
he waits beside his friend the mournful bell.
Although his yellow heart is made of gold,
her somber moods are spent where winters dwell

come the end of spring he changes face.
A pom-pom from a stem; he digs his claws.
Just one big yawn's enough to see him chased,
to every nook and cranny, 
there's his spores.

Alas the hooded wept has some respite
and smiles at Dandy's hair with sheer delight...
