Valsa George


Five Liners.no.6. Hey, Forest Nymphs!


I watch the feathered beauties of ravishing plumes
Flying from tree to tree making shrill calls
How I wish I could catch these birds
The lovely deities of the woody groves
To cage their loveliness and melody to own for myself

    Caged or not, you have successfully captured the ' lovely deities of the woody groves', 'the feathered beauties of ravishing plumes' in your poem, that will remain a forever beauty.
    What you wanted to own for yourself, their 'loveliness and melody', is now there for your readers to own. Great poem. (Report) Reply

    Ooh Valsa, surely you would be unable to sit in peace knowing you keep beauty in a cage? Surely these nymphs should roam as free as your beautiful poetry? (Report) Reply

    Lovely five liners. Those birds truly creat a longing for possession but their songs are always free for us. (Report) Reply

    May these winged friends with ravishing beauty
    Ever remain in your thoughts pure
    And never long for their caged presence in real! A superb flutter of thoughts... (Report) Reply

    A question-raiser five-liner! but didn't Keats console the Dryad of the woods in his assurance to her...No hungry generations/ tread thee down! ! ! (Report) Reply
