June Hymn

Here's a hymn to welcome in the day
Heralding a summer's early sway
And all the bulbs all coming in 
To begin
The thrushes bleating battle with the wrens
Disrupts my reverie again

Pegging clothing on the line
Training jasmine how to vine
 Up the arbor to your door
And more
Standing on the landing with the war
You shouldered all the night before

And once upon it
The yellow bonnets
Garland all the lawn
You were waking
Day was breaking
A panoply of song
And summer comes to Springville  Hill

A barony of ivy in the trees
Expanding on its empire by degrees
And all the branches burst to bloom
In the boom
Heaven sent the cardinal maroon 
To decorate our living room

Years from now when this old light
Isn't ambling anymore
Will I bring myself to write?
"I give my best to Springville Hill"
