Sunset's Glow - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Pinks, peaches, blues, greys and mauves,
Clouds that cross the sky in droves,
Gently drifting and as they go,
Create such pictures all aglow,
And give a calming of the mind.

My eyes then see trees with hills behind,
A lake and valley, a peaceful scene,
Floating there within a hazy dream,
Believing that it could, in fact, be real,
In colours delicate, and which you feel,
An artist with his very finest brush,
Has painted a perfect landscape, plush.

This view to me is always so fine,
A spectacle of an, exquisite design.

    An artist's eye for description. I have one criticism though, Ernestine: the use of 'his' in 'an artist with his finest brush'. Why not 'her'? We have two brilliant artists in You: the floral artist and the poet. 'Her' could refer to you in the poem painting for us with words a wonderful scene. This is not a feminist's remark. Susie xxxx.
