Summer with the water rats

#cento #summer #napowrimo

now i was young and easy under the apple boughs

on either side the river lie

blossoms and dewdrops at the bent sprays edge

open unto the fields, and to the sky

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone

meet in her aspect and her eyes

loveliest of trees, the cherry now

by silver reeds in a silver stream

from troubles of the world, by water cool

and a thousand fragrant posies

a glimmering girl, with blossom in her hair

moving through the brightening air
