What Am I To Do? ~


Without the boundless infinity of Springtime's sky?
Without my dandelion wishes
Without green embroidered stitches
Of this season of days gone by;
Without the mountains splashed with sun
Without all of it's radiance spun
Above and below - in flower gardens that grow
In moments to hours before day is done;
What am i to do?
Without the gentle murmuring of the dove?
Measured in the green of their everlasting love
Of the grass and clover's sheen
Of the beginning's of new lover's dream's
What am i to do? ;
And in the waves of purple sunsets
In the fragrance of rose's glow
In the depth's of new love to grow
What am i to do? ;
With the manicured earth scapes- i identify
Ever near the gown of blossoms grown
'Neath a rainbow of my very own
And of promises forever - new
Oh what am i to do - oh what am i to do? ;

And in this gentle longing
For my Spring times come and gone
A tear is shed in sweet memory
In this my Spring time song;

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,
