Beneath Blossom

In April’s last bright shower

of white pear petals

she took him gently

laid on daffodils

that soothed winter’s heartache

so by January next

they had their son

n.b. NaPoWriMo 2021 Day Fourteen a poem from a first or last name:

i) Perry from the Welsh patronymic ‘ap Henry’ / son of Henry.

ii) Perry from the English meaning ‘someone living by a pear tree.’

Here, a romantic combination of both derivations.
