Jane's love of Music, Nature, Whimsy, Paradox, Wildlife and Art, her hatred of War, and her conviction that the solution to the world's problems is more love, shine through this collection of original poems.

Crystaljane's Page

Jane has been writing poems all her life; this collection ranges from her love of Music, Nature, Whimsy, Paradox, Wildlife and Art, her hatred of War, and her conviction that the solution to the world's problems is more love. She writes from the heart, and is influenced by the Romantic poets, as much as by her own experience. There are several deep poems in this collection that discuss the nature of Time, among other things, hence the title!


May Delight
Jane Louise Johnson

In the green woods, harebells and blue
First carpet with flowers the ground
Primrose, pink campion, wild garlic too
Anemones spread all around
When winds and showers have counted the hours
And the first hint of summer is found

Sun gives each an allotted span
Then breaks forth the buds on trees
The swallows wing home flying fast as they can
Just for visions of beauty like these
Then swooping and diving and calling their mates
They build nests, as soon as they please

As budding trees burst into bloom
Leaves follow, new, tender and green
The woodland canopy dresses her limbs
Where bare bones of winter have been
Swift spins she her garment of verdant hue
And each rugged branch holds a skein

The light dims, cooler now, underfoot
Wild creatures give birth unseen
In each secret place where the younglings are put
Glossy leaves mottle shadow and sheen
New life in surprise opens wide baby eyes
And wonders, what can it all mean

Around the season's corner, May
With loosened tresses starts to play
Her warmth and smile, enticing, sweet
Shows fairy dells, inviting seat
While birds and bees and butterflies
Dance mazes, movements in her eyes

Magical mornings, whispering warnings
As Jack-under-hill holds sway
And mortals slip silently into the woods
Where Jack's oak-leaf crown calls the fey
And lads glance at lasses askance, making passes
In the wood's dance of welcome to May
