Bluebells - Poem by David Wood

Bluebells carpet the woodland floor
Packed so tightly that insects tip-toe
Softly and quietly between them.
Their beauty unlocks a woodland door

With such colour of delicate blue,
And a fragrance that is heaven sent.
They droop their heads in the spring rain,
With their beauty making all things new.

Their magic weaves a pleasant spell
A sea of blue that meanders in the breeze
And floats delicately over the forest floor,
Their fragrance creates a delicate smell.

Nature now has all its beauty brought
To the fore before summer casts its spell
Delicate bluebells making spring so fine
Their time on earth far too short.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The beauty of nature rings loud and clear with every season and each passing year

    The visual detail in this beautifully presented poem is simply anazing. I love how the Spring rain washes away the signs of Winter and everything is once more renewed as Bluebells and Spring flowers appear. I love the use of metaphor, and how you express the brevity of life so eloquently. A magical write and another poetic gem from your golden poetic pen. Thank you for sharing, David (Report) Reply

    Spring rains, a blue carpet in the woods, insects playing game of love, a cold country where summer is awaited, is it a poem or a blue painting? Amazing description of a beautiful wood by a lovely poet Blue.....10 (Report) Reply
