Bluebells


Oh they are so beautiful
Dancing beneath the trees
How they captivate my heart
Stood swaying in the breeze

Tiny bells of sapphire blue
Tinkling in the sun
A sweet enchanting melody
Within my mind is spun

I wish that they would linger
To charm and bring delight
In my mem’ry they will stay
This lovely woodland sight

    I have not seen this kind of flower in quite awhile. You have so vividly described
    it's beauty that I could have just imagined how lovely they were as they danced
    beneath the trees. Loved it. (Report) Reply
