End of Play
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.
