MORE

TO A MAYLING

(Cheery spring lines equate to sadness. The marvelous, youthful creations and promises of spring lead to heaviness of summer to you-know-what: winter extinction ....)(I can or cannot make this information available to be read by enclosing in html brackets).

Verse In Another Context

 
The sires of May          verse 1?
Chirp on the branches 
And croak by the laking. 
Awake for a sign 
From the woodbine and grasses. 

The sires of May            2? 
Mating and waiting 
Hiding and throbbing 
Creating the springing.The maylings 
the godlings, the saplings and lovelings. the seedlings love the spring. The robins, the dewing, the berries, the cooing, The children of May. 

or:

The sires of May      2-a
Mating and waiting
Hiding and throbbing
Creating the springing.

The maylings          2-b
the godlings, the saplings and lovelings,
the seedlings love the spring.
The robins, the dewing,
the berries, the cooing,
The children of May. (hard to tell e-mail spacing)

All born in May are made for love 3? 
Adored by the junebugs with Juno-esque 
              passion. 
Adore us, O Taurus, whatever the fashion 
For June is a desperate month. 

The melons are bursting       4? 
The hot sun a-thirsting 
The trees too eavy with child. (heavy?) 
The berries are stolen. 
The tadpoles are swollen, 
The bird nests littered with shell. 

 "I.U.C.D!" the robins are calling.5? 
The daffodil's going astray! 
Nature's ________ closing, (can't read the 
                                  word; crossed out) 
The Lippes loop pushing its way.6? 
Less blue now, 
Less green. 
The robins less red. 
The womb curtain falls on the play. 
                                    


This is 3/4 of the poem

I was trying to go by your e-mail rearrangement of the lines ... probably understood them wrong, but I have numbered the verses and can just rearrange them by number that you give me. 1 2 4 5 3 or whatever. Thanks so much. You can also give me any additional line breaks or additional lines or corrections ... not that hard to rework in html at this point.
