Lush - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

Near the flowering meadow-
Lilac's they scent the breeze-
Veiled 'neath motion-filled skies-
Are the Oak and Cherry Trees...

Running in crystal clear ripples-
O'er pebbles of days of past time-
'Tis a silver sparkled brook-
With small hills, nearby to climb...

The Vale 'tis sheer enchantment-
Pastoral views, they do abound-
Rustic-Bucholic-themed-
These visions, breath-takingly astound!

The colour-splashed panoramas of: The Artist-
From His palette to His feathery brush-
Done in oils or in water colours-
Captured are His Vales, Most Lush!

    This is a brilliant poem
    i myself usually do not write in a scheme
    occasionally when the mood strikes
    but i appreciate poets who do

    awesome poem!

    Lush is such an delicious word and you have used it to great effect in this pretty pastoral piece of worship and thanksgiving. It almost sounds like a hymn. Beautiful penning. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply
