Pure Delight


Skies awashed in blue and pearl
Sun reflects a beam speckled yellow, green and blue
A blush of poppies amidst the meadow, silver green
Gently swaying in the breeze
Springs rapport with days of yore
Rocks amidst the velvet moss
As waters trickled past
I dropped a pebble and watched the ripple
Until the waters edge
Tis with pure delight I sat amidst the trees
And listened to the music flow

    Tis with pure delight I sat amidst the trees

    A beautiful poem which gives the impression of spring in its entirety.

    It's a pure delight to imagine the imagery you pictured.
    'I dropped a pebble and watched the ripple
    Until the waters edge
    Tis with pure delight I sat amidst the trees
    And listened to the music flow '
    As though I am sitting beside you and watching this! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
