Today I have decided to bring you one of Blyton’s poems, because we haven’t had one in a long time.
This one is called The Passing of Summer and I thought it was appropriate as we are slowly slipping away from the warm summer that we’ve enjoyed.
The Passing of Summer
There’s a whisper through the trees,
And a warning chills the bees,
Cull the honey while you may,
Velvet bees, along the way!
There’s a murmur from the stream,
And the dragon-flies that gleam
Play a while, you pretty things,
With the Sunshine on your wings!
There’s a message from the sea,
Little swallows, wild and free,
Stay your flying,
Linger while the sun is bright.
Ere you call your last good night!
What a lovely little poem it is! I hoped you enjoyed it!
Thank you Stef. How wonderful Enid was at evoking the seasons and nature.
I ❤ her poems! so full of a certain charming innocence they are!
