Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

Summer's Song.

Awakened, we will,
Along the rill of summer's edge,
Find the glory of sound.

Light of foot, treading
On airy, hallowed, woodland ground,
We sense summer pledging
Our delight. We may,
By not straying far, hear striking
A stone with shell, the thrush,
Breakfasting. Or catch
The twitter of chicks in rushes,
Being fed. Trout rising,
Resonate the stream
With rippled trills. A blackbird sings
Nearby and thrills the air,
And seed pods explode.

Summer sings loud, and we, sharing
By ear, hear hidden things.

    invited in to your woodland scene, dappled lighted by rippling stream
    quiet of foot and ears strained, the forest creatures yet untamed
    bird song, mayflies, a croaking frog, a thousand miles from city smog
    at one with natures wondrous treasures, thank you Lord for simple pleasures

    Thank you Fay, lovely poem, regards Bob (Report) Reply

    Finely chosen diction with jingling music in the background filigreed images from the Nature's best in summer.

    Another masterpiece Fay
    I love the sounds of summer
    Today it is a stunning Day
    Birds are signing I can hear the wind gentle blowing through
    the Lavender Bushes and grasses
    I won't be on the computer long as I want to enjoy it.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
