Hawthorn Flowers At Last

Hawthorn in flower

Here’s a poem about hawthorn from my book ‘See with Heart’. Traditionally said to indicate the start of summer, hawthorn, also known as may blossom, is flowering quite late here this year.

Hawthorn Tree

Twisted spine
Ancient wise
The sap does rise
Strong being fine
Does realise
Before my eyes
Ancestral line
The heart that cries
Is healed
