The Jasmeen Tree and Devil's Hair


So lovingly to soil she sent her roots
Now caresses the casement its lovely shoots
Starry flowers glow in twilight green
Dance in breeze and in dew they preen
The Jasmeen tree fragrance’s tender lore
Whispering perfumes to yonder shores
Hark! How envy grows out of its roots
Ringlets and threads like ropes brute
Malicious tresses wrap all around
Beauty so green is viciously confound
Pearly flowers tangled in raven hair
But who can capture the maiden so fair
She still stands tall in her turret bower
Laughing in sunshine glowing in shower
Necking birds and gemming flowers
Swing on boughs for hearts a dower
Poison of love wine outdone by balmy tower
Incensed symphony does float on air
Heaving through strangling weed’s snare

    Great write.May be some men can catch the glow and only they are beyond vision for many such malicious tresses to reckon- -every inch of tress has some story behind its darkness it plunges the mind into.Inquisitive write.Stupendous flow. (Report) Reply

    This is one of the most beautiful poems I have read on a tree! (not flattering) The Jasmine tree with its exotically fragrant flowers is called Champa here. It may be strangled by wild creepers, but nothing can hide its perfume and the glaring whiteness of its flowers among dark emerald leaves! By seeing the spelling changed, I see a deeper implication to the poem. Is this JASMEEN that Jasmine, thriving among rivalry and jealousy? ? (Report) Reply

For amber waves of grain,
