Green Street - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

What is your address sir?
Where on the blades of grass do you make your home?
Is it near to the clover or the napping place of Rover?
Or further out where the Buffalo roam?
Can we come to visit you, sir?
Perhaps share a cup of oolong tea?
Have a chat about - -'this and that'
Or your neighbour - the humble bumble bee
Speak about your other neigbour's
Perhaps the violet's or the ruby- red rose
Or maybe the Monarch family
Where in a deep cocoon - it still grows.

    as green street stretches beyond
    we seem live there in by by mountains and moors
    sunflower and green gloss
    when rain and summer visit to see winter fall
    in lurid darkness and lone it lays back as divine flow, wonderful write by imagery like crooning breeze blushes corn thanks for sharing
