Treasure Island

Valerie Dohren

(13 January 1947 / Southport)

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

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
