Treasure Island

A Summering Day~

My bed of blossoms - awaken
While the skirt of dawn simply sways
Embroidered leaves & butterflies embellish
While euphoria warms in the new sun's rays;
A garden of the richest splendour
Evokes memories of love most enchanted times
Wafting fragrances of this days blooms
Creates an ambience most sublime;
Bordering on - near sheer perfection
As day grows into a more prolific way
While the hem of late afternoon 'tis idle
My bed of blooms prepare for the end of day;
All tucked neatly in their earthen bed
All comfy - cozy & ready for a nightly rest
The blanket of night covers them ever gently
Slumbering in perfection- are the very best;

    I really enjoyed this very lovely poetic write. A beautiful bed
    of flowers basking in the sunlight and coming to rest
    at night in the flower bed. A well crafted poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
