How Lovely - Poem by Valerie Dohren

How lovely is the summer breeze
That whispers through the leafy trees
Then graceful drifts across the land
Through blades of grass yet gently fanned

How beautiful are eyes that shine
With joy and peace, and love divine
To thus enchant each sorrowed heart
With benediction to impart

How wonderful the evening mist
(Within its veil two lovers kissed)
Then o`er the land to linger there
As wraith-like curtains in the air

Amazing are the birds that sing
So elegant upon the wing
Above and in the sky so sweet
Then softly each new day to greet

How blissful is the fireside glow
Whilst all about is set with snow
To feel its warmth upon your face
As if enwrapped in love`s embrace

Magnificent the mountain stream
Cascading down to pastures green
Glistening in the noon-day sun
As threads of gossamer unspun

How sweet the scent of autumn rain
To drench the land which so again
Replenishes the arid earth
And brings all things once more to birth

How glorious, how wonderful,
How beautiful, adorable
Life`s pleasures such as these to know
Which through our lives forever flow

    How lovely doesn't begin to discript the beauty of this
    and all your poems. I get weak in the knees reading
    some of your work. I can't comment on all your poems
    but be assured I've read them and admire them all.
    What is you DNA, you must descend from the Masters.
