A Walk Through A Cemetry

Rating: 5.0
The path was narrow and cobbled in sandstone
Birds warbled and squabbled and pecked sweet honey
From brilliant flowers, that flowered a tree
Just like a still life that sit on an easel
The artificial pond was brimming with colourful life
Fishes and tadpoles and frogs that sat on green lillies
Artificial gnomes watching in awe
At life, so alive, so alive, like you and me
Just like a still-life, that sit on an easel
Just past the pond, a new world awaited me
Rows and rows of silence greeted me

Did nobody notice the misspelled word in the title? Nor the grammar mistakes in the poem? You all say it's a great write. What hypocrites you all are!

ii like this, allan. like the accessible and familiar picture you create, like the vibrant scene you create against the setting of the cemetery (you'll need to correct the spelling) , like how you let us infer meaning from the scene you create. i look forward to reading more poems by you. -glen kappy
