May Bank Holiday

May 3, 2010

The bank has gone on holiday.
He’s taken lots of money.
He’s visiting a river bank —
A land of milk and honey
(Or so he’s read in brochures,
Though they can exaggerate)
But soon he sees some dandelions
Whose seeds proliferate,
And on the yellow flowers the bees
Take pollen for their honey;
The stems leak milky fluid;
This bank’s rich, if not with money,
Then rich with flowers and grasses;
With toadstools, toads and frogs.
What fun the holidaying bank
Is having as he trogs
Along the path beside the stream,
Enjoying his May day trek!
Tomorrow he’ll be back in town
For you to cash your cheque.
