The Queen’s Scepter


knighthood
is bestowed upon
all the glories and duties of snow

The Queen’s Roadside Court


at her command
buttercup and thistle’s
pomp and circumstance

Her Delicate Majesty


the queen
in light and shadow
the shimmer of her flowerless crown

Nature’s Company


just the queen
and me
enough of everything

Flowering Light


perfectly composed
by the side of the road
sunshine and shade

Queen Anne’s Field


the old red barn
watch guard
of the queen’s field
