Ernestine Northover

(25th March 1943)

*Boats A Bobbing

I’m sitting on the jetty, feet dangling o’er the sea,
A view that’s so breathtaking, that it’s enveloped me.
The sunlight on the water, with facets shining bright.

    A most refreshing read Ernestine! I long to get back to appreciating the pure essence of beauty in just being in the environment and enjoying it. I felt a cool breeze of relaxation coming over me as I read your lovely poem.

    So good to read you again.

    How busy you have been
    To post four poems on a whim
    (I know it doesn't rhyme
    But 'been' is difficult in its prime)

    With eyes wide open
    Listening to the din
    Of the world about you
    When others haven't a clue.

    You capture the celestial beauty
    Of the water and its bounty
    As you watched from the shore
    And duly penned it, for evermore.

    Tomorrow will come with sunrise
    And many a surprise
    So keep your eyes wide open
    And ready your paper and pen
    For a new poem is somewhere hidden
    Just where and when?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
