Where The Wildflowers Bloom (Villanelle) - Poem by David Wood

In the warmth of the sun wildflowers bloom
Along the side of the road and on the Gower
Where Cornflower Poppy and Daisies lift the gloom

Summers blaze of colour explodes with a boom
With such an overwhelming sense of power
In the warmth of the sun wildflowers bloom

They blow in the breeze with their sweet perfume
The Autumn Hawkbit foxglove and Cuckooflower
Where Cornflower Poppy and Daisies lift the gloom

A wildflower meadow charm will utterly consume
And the thoughts of their beauty will empower
In the warmth of the sun wildflowers bloom

Bewitched by the beauty of their petal costume
Or the colour of Foxgloves delightful bellflower
Where Cornflower Poppy and Daisies lift the gloom

Wildflowers are the glory of nature we can assume
In their company your senses they will overpower
In the warmth of the sun wildflowers bloom
Where Cornflower Poppy and Daisies lift the gloom

Topic(s) of this poem: flowers, nature

Form: Villanelle


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The wildflowers are coming to an end as autumn arrives but they added a splash of colour along the side of the road and over the Gower.
