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 Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
