Camelia - Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

The sweet scented flowers of pink are now blooming
And telling the land that the springtime is here,
For soft and like velvet their petals are glowing
I've waited a lifetime to see them appear.
So still,
The songs of the dawn,
Camelia shines
As a new day is born.

Like skies of the morning their colour enriching
The land with their splendour such joy they do give,
And filling my senses with passion and feeling
A sight I shall treasure as long as I live.
So still,
The songs of the dawn,
Camelia shines
As a new day is born.

The sweet scented flowers of pink look so lovely
While bathed now in sunlight and sprinkled with dew,
As gently the weep silver tears of emotion
Which fall to the ground as the skies turn to blue.
So still,
The songs of the dawn,
Camelia shines
As a new day is born.

    Shining poems, Andrew... Gentle and attractive as your camellia... This flower decorates the woman especially... And why - that I recollect Prosper Merimee... 10x10..
    Sincerely,
    Tsira

    This is just so lyrical Andrew. It reads like the lyrics of a song - with it's mix of verse and chorus. The subject is a exquisitely beautiful one, and your words indeed to it justice. Thoroughly satisfying poetry. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply

    What more could one ask for. A pure delight with another pattern to surprise and satisfy the reader fully. The first time my daughter tasted champagne her cheeks turned pink just like the flowers you are describing. Wonderful write! (Report)Reply
