End of Play

entry picture

Nestled, spent, in sheltered field,

Mind and body still to heal.

All my troubles locked outside,

In natures armour, safe I lie.

Days adventures drawn to close,

Now to quiet thoughts I move.

Evenings breath, upon my face,

Its soothing vapours leave no trace,

But cool the glow of summer fun,

And now to you I turn upon.


Look! The faultless azure spread,

Tie dyed corner turned to red.

Oh! To watch your joyous play!

In closing hours of summers day.

Host of swallows fill the sky,

Strokes on canvas as they fly.

With wanton envy, like lust of love,

Drawn am I to you above.

Of cage or tethers you know not.

All I'd give for what you've got.

the first six lines of the second verse are simply stunning. i'd not be surprised to find them in a dusty book of classic poetry from the 19th century. just beautiful.

lovely poem Beno and no horrid twist half way through which is often hard to resist when writing poetry. It can also be tricky avoiding the cheesy trap which you have managed admirably. We defo need more like this. Cheers. Col.

Beautifully put Beno.

It can be very therapeutic to transpose ourselves upon nature and to imagine that wild freedom.

But in truth we possess that very power within ourselves.

Lovely writing,
