Elegy In A Flower Garden

Rating: 4.9
each petal that falls even
from the homeliest blossom
is grieved by the congregation
of blooms in the garden

a solitary demise
is not an isolation

though not heard nor seen
the emptiness it creates
hangs heavy and tumid
untunes the euphony of echoes
and casts thick darkness
in the serenity of white clouds
puts the glade, the lake in gloom

pink and yellow bells toll
an earnest elegy for the fallen

This poem as so much soul. 'untunes the euphony of echoes' did it for me. It is very very beautiful and written with such dignity. Karin Anderson

An excellent elegy. Even the flowers feel. My mind goes back to Wordsworth: Even the smallest flower that blows To me can give thoughts that lie Too deep for human tears. I am quoting from memory, if wrong, please make amends. CP

I enjoyed this one Eddie. It is though the flowers sense their own demise through one petal drop.
