Messy church

Fields full of buttercups

Fields full of buttercups
Tossing madly trees
Rivers of grasses
Flowing in the breeze

Dandelions joyous
Defiant yellow weeds
Scattering profusely
Clocks of hairy seeds

Mists of forget-me-nots
Seas of bluebells
Sharing the woodland
Where the wild garlic smells

White clouds racing
To a far distant shore
The cry of the curlew
Floating over the moor

Sounds and scenes to treasure
As I pass along my way
There’s nowhere quite like Yorkshire  
On a glorious spring time day

By June Aileen Burnett

     Tony Burnett of St John’s Methodist Church died recently. This lovely poem by his wife Jane who predeceased him was read at the thanksgiving service for his life on 19 June 2017
