The Lament Of The Evening Forest Poem by Phil J Hambling

The Lament Of The Evening Forest

Rating: 5.0


The lament of the evening forest
Abandoned by the sun once more
To the flutterings of change on the wing
As sky-dot murmurations descend
To the kraas of the crows
A message to unwelcome strangers
Permeates the soul
To leave this place now
To its tenants of the night

I particularly liked the suggestion that forest to be left to its own with its inhabitants with peace.

A marvellous poem with vivid images of the forest, the approach of the darkness and the quietness.
