(Taurus / Ontario)

Rest with Open Sight

Sunshine, is a sunflower seed
Bursting with effervescent glow
And sailing sallow arrowed rays
Down to the Oak I sit below
On a grassy gown of blanket green
cushioned with moss; a balmy thrown
While chandeliers of emerald leafs
Climb passageways to serene groves
Humbly, I sleep, beneath the shade
In lost warmth that the years have stole

No trepiditions - is heard to steer
The Belted kingfishers delight
Cross the white wash of the stream
Cathing Salmon in mid flight
The rush of water trickles down
A narrow path of crystallite
Reverberates on choired winds
Majestically on boughs of lime
Summer stands tall and inviting
And at last I rest with open sight

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
