Gibberish Poem by Mary Elizabeth Coleridge

Gibberish

Rating: 2.9


Many a flower have I seen blossom,
Many a bird for me will sing.
Never heard I so sweet a singer,
Never saw I so fair a thing.

She is a bird, a bird that blossoms,
She is a flower, a flower that sings;
And I a flower when I behold her,
And when I hear her, I have wings.

I appreciated the comment by Savita Tyagi, the beautiful lines took on additional possibilities, and made the title wonderfully appropriate.

She must have written it as a lullaby for her baby and as a mother I can vouch the baby must have loved it.

Gibberish, yes, but lovely gibberish indeed. At least she knew it was gibberish when she wrote it.
