The Next One

The next one will be shades of green

Verdant deep as shady ways

Daffodils on dark spring days

Sunlight on a new mown lawn

Foliage at summer’s dawn

Wattle blossoms on the tree

That’s how my next quilt will be

But Blue and yellow may be nice

Buttercups and cornflowers pressed

Country cooks in gingham dressed

Light and breezy, fresh and clean

Prettiest quilt there’s ever been

Hung on the wall for all to see

That’s how my next quilt will be

But as I gaze at my rose garden

I see essence of blood and beauty

Summer wine or something fruity

A baby’s smile or forest fire

Sweet first love or deep desire

Perhaps I’ll settle for all three

Yes, that’s how my next quilts will be
