A Sonnet Of Nature - Poem by Portia Burton

Will you please come with me?
This dusty path will lead us
To a beautiful sonnet of Nature-

Whose first stanza is a hedge
Where the bramble protects
The merry wild flowers;

Its second stanza is
A meadow full of lush green grass,
Engrossed in the memory
Of tantalizing showers;

Its third stanza is
A throng of willow trees
Huddled in some deliberation

And then as the last couplet
Will come a bed of blue irises
Lost in meditation.

Then will come as a long pause,
A lake, serious as a critic,
Contemplating in its stillness
The meaning of this sonnet.
