    what could a man found and lost
    in one day that happens on may?
    i would say their mom. may is
    month when mother's day is
    celebrated. he probably see

    A golden bird was singing
    Its melody divine,
    I found you and I loved you,
    And all the world was mine.

    I usually enjoy the melody divine in classical flute solo. Also in bird song, especially in preserved wilderness areas. Anyone who has enjoyed the dawn chorus in appropriate places with New Zealand national parks, or similar places in other countires, will immediately know what this means.

    'Far above the bellbird sings,
    sweet songster
    your notes are like
    the mellow chimes of tiny bells.

    A tui, the parson-bird, takes up the call
    and sings a solo,
    complemented by the whispering wind
    that stirs the leaves.'

    The above brief quotation from 'Perspective Stand' which was written in 1982, might hopefully aid city bound readers to understand a little of the wonder of this phenomena. 'A Golden Day' by Paul Laurence Dunbar is a romantic poem rich in simplicity. (Report) Reply

    A lovely, but sad poem of love found & then lost. It's sure one we can all relate to.
    It has a lovely, natural flow to it too. Thanks for sharing.

    'divine' is poor in 'melody divine'. But the poem tugs a little at the heart, for some of us have been there. (Report) Reply

    A poem of praise on the loved one like the song of a golden bird on a golden day is a day of dream in May indeedT (Report) Reply

    But when I dream of you, dear,
    It is always brimming May.....memorable words...no doubt, sweet memory is always treasured in sweet dreams...a golden poem (Report) Reply

    The lamentation of love lost at the end of a day's infatuation; and yet, the memory of that day will probably loom larger than the reality of it, and make it May once more. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
