Green Trees May gives us green trees They shade our road sprees Shade is a refreshing thing When the sun goes Bing! I run near green ridges They form neat bridges Out to the next location As folks view in admiration. Green buds appear in spring Growing steadily with zing By May showing full leaf Their stay long, never brief. Green trees are a warm sign Reducing a cold-weather whine While providing a green view As the skies stay sunny blue. Soon the warm summer season Will create a great reason To run near the green trees Enjoying easier road sprees. May 2022 Sunday begins May’s run Tempered by spring sun Frost is a dwindling choice Due to our warming voice. Mother’s Day is a great day We honor moms and say Thank You for all you do Moms are the family glue. Running in May is great Gone is that wintry fate That slows our road gait Nature opened her gate. Living colors are a daily sight We view on our road flight These hues are a visual gift Missed by those driving swift. May 2022 is moving along Accompanied by bird song May running is so perfect There’s never a disconnect. Living Colors Living colors sprout in May Visible along any highway Or in the neighboring fields As nature increases yields. The Runner out on the road Views a colorful May episode As do runners on the trail Where the colors never fail. An early morning May run Beneath that dawning sun Reveals colors everywhere Those views beyond compare. Of course, we see the green Covering our roadside screen Rich green vegetation grows Alone or in neat tidy rows. Living colors while on the run Are always pleasant and fun When viewing at a good pace They place smiles on your face.
