Works Of Art - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Corn Circles scattered across our land,
Are they by aliens, or by humans planned,
Patterns so intricate, they so amaze,
Is it a hostile message, or just a craze.

There seems no answer to this weird event,
No wonder the farmers, feel such torment,
Whether they appear from outer space,
Or are created by our own earthly race.

One day the fields are all high with corn,
Next day one finds a design is born,
But they really are such works of art,
Even if someone is trying to outsmart,
Us all!

    Crop circles are certainly art in a grand scale... as is your poetry, Ernestine!

    I love these designs as seen from the air. They truly are works of art - or designs of aliens - or whatever. Either way, the joke is on us! Thanks for this laugh, Ernestine. When you find out if THEY are coming for us....let us know! Scarlett (Report) Reply
