A Wordy Thursday Poem

April's apple blossoms wasting

'Twas the second weekend in May
April's apple blossoms wasting
Unpicked they'd long begun to dry
First on branches now the roadsides

He was headed this morning down
Down the mountain below the clouds
On mission he'd buy a flower
Carnation for his favored girl

They would be liked at the Spring Ball
He kicked up some browning blossoms
Better than kicking cans those hurt
Made his feet ache like she his bod

When they parted he missed her so
Walking along thinking of her
Did she hurt as well when he left
Tonight could they be light like kids

Gay with laughing light doorstep kiss
Then from her balcony smiling
Toss some remembrance of herself
Homeward kick more blooms her in mind

as Sanaa mentioned, this has the sweetness of memories and nostalgia - the blossoms that linger longer than usual, then drop fast and litter, but ah, the joy of moments when the magic still perfumes the air - how lovely it all is for it then.

Memories, we collect them and they become as fragile as dried roses. Beautiful poem

On mission he'd buy a flower
Carnation for his favored girl

He's not forgetting what any good guy would have done

Partings tend to be tough on everyone, even when things end with blossoms...
