A lane of Yellow led the eye

Rating: 5.0

A lane of Yellow led the eye
Unto a Purple Wood
Whose soft inhabitants to be
Surpasses solitude
If Bird the silence contradict
Or flower presume to show
In that low summer of the West
Impossible to know -

Emily, I wonder again and again at you....how, only you can bring in such amazing imageries? Yellow lane of summer...wonderful...and is it birds or flowers that contradict silence? I feel as if I was with you at that moment...even I don't know the answer- -10

Marvelous portrayal of a mood of nature through it's manifestations. A great flight of imagery and a poem rich in rhyme and rhythm.

Show and know, the rhyme at the end of the poem resounds and moves the mind to wonder what life brings.
