Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


A Soft Summer's Day


We sit by the stream
On this soft summer's day
Entranced by the dance
As the dragonflies play.

A waggle tailed moorhen
Leads young to the nest
While the arrogant Swan
Knows she's looking her best.

In the meadow the mad Hare
Continues the chase
As the Spider weaves webs
That the dew turns to lace.

Overhead, soft white pillows
Cross pastel blue skies
And I gaze with pure joy
As I see skylarks rise.

I look at you sleeping, a smile on my face
And I thank Mother nature for sharing this place.
The silver stream gurgles on it's merry way
As I glory in you, and a soft summer's day.

    To be warmed by the sun, blessed by the breeze, caressed by the lush of grass, green...and then, as luck would have it...share a day of such splendor with someone who adds a beating to your heart..aahhhh...perfect! Your poem pinpoints all that is lovely. PEACE (Report) Reply

    Mother nature sheds a tear for the beauty she has found in your lovely poetry here. Such touching and beautiful expressions of love and vivid descriptions of the beauty in nature as seen through your eyes. Its a pity that our rating scale can only go as high as a 10 for this one deserves much higher. (Report) Reply

    A beautifully constructed and descriptive tribute th the gentle and euphoric majesty and our occasional reconnection with its greatness and the perfection that sharing that experience with a loved one brings. (Report) Reply

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
