The Wedding – Author Glenda Higgins


Running through wildflowers

Knee-high and white

Little black sputnik birds

Fast on yellow feet


A miniature meadow

For fairies and wood folk

Out for a stroll too

Unseen in the glowing green


Pirouettes with daisies

The earth’s wedding bouquet

As she marries summer

For another year


Promises made in sunlight

Among the yellow and white

Stretching to the sea

Inspected by pigeons


And ocean birds

Inland for awhile

Trumpeters with fish breath

And beguiling smiles


Running through wildflowers

Knee-high and white

While the earth marries summer

And gives up the night

About the Author 

Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.

 Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks.  This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
