Poetry Sunday-A-May-Zing




 A-May-Zing Times in the Garden



It’s May, it’s May the bluebird sang,

And robin echoed hooray with his glad refrain!



The frog croaked with delight as he sprang from the pond,

To welcome his friends to their new surrounds.



And buzzing bees joined hummingbirds on the wing,

This time in the garden is just A-May-Zing!

I had a lot of fun writing this May poem in 2013.  Nature is awake and celebrating May with me.




I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

    1. Right now 4 different types of frogs and toads are rejoicing in the pond all night… They are disturbing the peace with their party, but I like their style! 🙂

  1. Ah, you have definitely gotten me in the spring mood with your photos and poetry. I love the bluebird. Haven’t seen one of them in a long time around here, but robins are abundant. As for bees, sigh, they become fewer and fewer…. A good day to you, Donna!

  2. Loved this beautiful depiction of Spring 😀
    Adorable pictures too..!
    Beautifully written 😀

    Lots of love

  3. Oh I do love that zing you have shared with us…we for one feel springy and more cheerful having read your magical words..

  4. Donna, I love the blue bird and I didn’t know it’s our NY state bird. The poem is lovely and playful. I’m on a break from blogging, too busy to post, but wanted to stop by to say hello 🙂

  5. A May Zing makes the heart sing to the song of the bluebirds…you have created a happy poem and I enjoyed the sounds of your May day..

  6. Ah, the welcoming sounds of almost-summer 🙂 The sight of bluebirds and cardinals still thrill me–I just moved to the East Coast from the Midwest a year ago. They have such brilliant colors! Have a good evening

  7. Donna, your May poem is so cute. I love to hear the sounds of the frogs and birds in spring. Your bluebirds are beautiful.
    Have a happy day and week ahead!

  8. I have a bird feeder in the back garden, yesterday I spotted a bird I had not seen before, he was a beautiful grey. He dropped to the wall, and just a suddenly, a large yellow cat replaced him….it all happened so quickly, one moment I was looking at the bird, and the next a large yellow cat. I think the grey bird also saw the cat, he got away! Thank you for the poem of May.

  9. I love, love, love your poem for today. It made me so happy. Thanks for the photo with the bluebird with the quote, I save them all.

  10. Oh my goodness! The first & last photos made me so so so happy! Bluebirds are one of my favorite birds, so I am delighted to see (+ hear) them here.

  11. May is so wondrous in so many parts of the world. It has been delightful here in The Sonora Desert, as we have enjoyed cooler than average May temps. so this year, from me, you;ll get a resounding “Yay for May!”

  12. Very much to the point of what May shares with us. Delightful Donna and great photos of the bluebird.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  13. Wonderful!! Wonderful, indeed…celebrating May, just like this! Great poem, Donna!
    Hooray for May,
    If I may to say…
    Hooray… for the blue birds,
    For the blue skies
    And for the all blossoms,
    That in the garden’s soul
    you will can find…”
    (ps. sorry if I have some grammar errors in my lyrics…still learning to express in english as much well, as I can..)
    Warm greetings to you and a very sunny week for soul in may!

    1. I think it has a lot to do with whether the bird is male or female and the time of year….in spring the blue of the males becomes more luminescent and lighter.

  14. Wooow, What a gentlel bird you have shown us! Tank you so much for sharing.The beauty of the figure and the color is surely a gift from God.

  15. Thank you, Donna, for your kind comments on my blog. What a delightful spring poem! I just love it when when all the flowers, insects and animals start to proliferate!

  16. Bluebirds are beautiful and you have wonderful images and words of them. Nice to see the winged happiness arrive.
