In Nature's Bosom

During my morning strolls along country paths
The world comes alive in all its gleam n’ glitter
What lovely vistas unfurl and pass me by
What miracles of creation, what wonders of life

What variety, what fantastic medley
What serene peace, what easeful tranquility
Sights and scenes that hold one’s breaths
Sounds and songs that chase the moody aches

A bird twittering on a tree, a squirrel jumping from branch to branch
A flower here, a flower there, on the hedge and over the bower
Flirting with dandy butterflies on iridescent wings
Bunches of blooms nestled in the foliage of silken green

The early sun golden and glowing, dispersing radiant rays
The cotton clouds spreading a woolly carpet on his way
The puff of air intoxicant with heady fragrance
And doused with the chill of early morning mist

Herds of cattle grazing on far away meads
Avian chatter blended with the music of leaping cataracts
Their echoes sent out by tall rocks and giant boulders
All that pleases the eye and ear in euphoric delight

Had I been a Raphael or Rembrandt
I would have transferred those scenes onto a canvas
Which one would never get tired of gazing at
And kept in the drawing room for everyone to see

Or a Wordsworth to have composed those immortal
Tintern Abbey lines, inspired by these ‘beauteous forms’
To be recalled and recited by men of all ages and climes
That they ever ring resonant in their private closets!

    Poetry is never more valuable than when it increases our appreciation of the natural world.
    Glorious scene!

    I also feel frustrated for not being able to share the beauty that nature reveals to eyes with a brush, in colors. But you have done it pretty well with a pen, in words, before my eyes have more than a beautiful original paint, thank you!

    You are an accurate observer of the things going on in hilly terrains. No poet of the past or present can surpass you in this art. You stroll and watch all these avian calls, jumping squirrels, flirting butterflies and so on.
    Beautiful lines pleasing to ears and eyes.

    I live out in the country and sometimes goes on long walks. You have enlightened
    me on the many ways to enjoy the lovely nature that surrounds me. I wrote a poem
    titled Diamonds in the Sky. Looking up I saw all of those things after reading this I
    will look around me just a little bit more. Very inspiring and thoughtful.

    You have captured and painted many beautiful images here Valsa. An enchanting poem indeed.

    Another poignant and focused jewel of the Nile, thank you.

    What a beautiful idyllic scene you've painted with lovely imagery. Your lines nearly transported me to the place you described. Good poetry always stir our imagination.

  • Chandra Thiagarajan (7/20/2013 2:07:00 AM)

    In Nature's Bosom- you have vividly depicted Nature in all her finery with keen observation and have presented us an amazing poem for all times., Valsa! Really I can take your poem to be on par with WORDSWORTH and am sure it will find a place in school and college texts for all to remember and recite for the future generation.
