A Summer´s Morn

A Summer´s Morn


I look down at my feet in dew soaked grass

which glistens a fresher green

awash with nascent life

Close by a tree with fledgling leaves

stands as a proud silhouette

before a rising sphere of incandescent flame

A canopy of azure, an awning

of the natural world holds sway

Sounds of birds joyously in flight

as pigeons nod to and fro for food

A distant dog barks to announce his presence

Moles have wreaked havoc

in a nearby field with a landscape

of volcanic mounds

A cat leaps from path to branch

a bee caresses an open bloom

Swans glide gracefully along the river

with ducks in duteous single file do follow

Curtains yet to be drawn

as human life holds fast to its slumber

The natural world enjoys its

Coronation in uninterrupted light

◄ Hard to find...

Time for Change ►
