Corrida de toros

The blooming of the lilies

and the running of the bulls

are coincident this year in hot July.

Shouts of toro! fill the air

in Spain, while in my garden

the yellow smile of a day lily

is counterpoint to the red

in Spanish streets.


Judith Robbins lives in Whitefield, ME. She writes: “I have been writing poems all my life and have published in anthologies, magazines and journals. This year North Country Press will publish my first collection. I’m a semi-retired minister, mother of four and doting grandmother of two. I write in a small shingled house under the pines of our very rural property. “
