May I?


Quiet, May quiet,

Buzzing bee quiet,

Clinking, clanking

Next door neighbour,

Garden lunch dishes quiet.

Fluffy cotton unthreatening

Sparse thin cloud,

Soft pale blue sky quiet,

Gentle sun, high plane quiet,

Distant humming traffic quiet.

Proud strutting bird breast quiet,

Whistling tweety tweetering quiet,

Mighty minny quarreling midges quiet,

Slowly struggling blackspotted red-backed insects quiet…

[INTERVENTION – hammering, drilling N.O….I….S.E.]

Stay away! Unquiet quiet!…

Stay quiet…

Down noise…

Quiet quietness,

Quite nice…

Perfectly, stilly quiet…almost…

Quiet because there is noise?

Noise makes you Quiet?

The other way round?

Conspiracy? Comprimise? A struggle?

May quietness dominate!

Today, in mothering May,

Quietly stay,

Yes, you may… Yes, YOU, May!
