MAYBE…

MAYBE…

Maybe there’ll be a golden sun
Maybe there’ll be clouds
Maybe there’ll be rain-drops spattering the ground

Maybe there’ll be cherry blossom
Maybe apple trees
Maybe there’ll be lavender all over buzzing bees

Maybe there’ll be woodlands
Maybe with some deer
Maybe there’ll be a tranquil pond, shining crystal clear

Maybe there’ll be brown pheasants
Maybe birds that fly
Maybe there’ll be blue bells against the sapphire sky

Maybe there’ll be foxes
Maybe hunting in the night
Maybe there’ll be feathery owls, gently taking flight

Maybe there’ll be silver fish
Maybe sleek tadpoles
Maybe there’ll be some dormice, vanishing into holes

Maybe it is coming soon
Maybe it’s months away
Maybe it’s the best time of the year…the glorious month of
May
