Why Should I She Said - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis

What do you see? he said
Startling her
What do you mean? she said
Turning to him

Do you see the geese in the sunlight
Floating regal across the pond?
Do you see the lean of the white birch
Combed over by the west wind?
Do you see our log is a favorite place
for a squirrel to take his lunch on?
Do you hear the tiny soft parade
of red ants at our feet?
Do you trace a story in the clouds
Billowing boldly in the blue?

Why should I she said
When I can look at you

Topic(s) of this poem: happiness, love, beauty, nature, good

    This is so sweet! This is love. Or at least, this is what should be like. Mutual appreciation of nature and of each other. I feel lighter after reading this one. Beautiful images. (Report)Reply

    Watching geese sitting in sunlight amazes mind entirely. Floating regal across the pond scribbles mind more and more. This is interesting poem very well penned. Excellent poem metaphorically presented with beauty, love and perception of nature.10 (Report)Reply
