The Birds And Leaves - Poem by David Medforth

Houses dotted here and there;
Plotted landscape. Time and care.
A swarming sea of starlings see
The heather meadows down below.

Cheeks caressed by the gentle breeze,
The hours melt away with ease.
My perfect escape; idyllic view
My swollen heart and joy for you.

Ever did we feel so sanguine,
Neath the willow branches hanging.
Trickling through, the warming sunbeam
Happy; both in a drifting daydream.

    Thank you, Seema. T'was but a simple park in the heart of our Country. Sometimes your world can be shaped by those you share it with. That, my friend, was one of those days. The location: Allesley Park in Coventry. On the hill.

    'Ever did we feel so sanguine,

    Neath the willow branches hanging.

    Trickling through, the warming sunbeam

    Happy; both in a drifting daydream.'

    A very well written finale of a beautiful nature poem... Thanks for sharing David..
