I heard the bluebells ringing …

I heard the bluebells ringing

in the light birch wood ..

that ethereal music of the spring.

The sound resounding in my heart ..

whose whisper stirred that carillon

and taught the chaffinches their song?

‘Blue, blue, blue,’

they were singing ..

‘blue, blue, blue

are the bells we are ringing;

blue as our petals

is the clear sky above ..

blue is the beauty of bluebells,

my love ‘..

But, oh, out in the meadow

where soft cowslips bloom

my silent tears erased their perfume …
