Descriptive Poem


Tar sucking in warm rays of the sun.
Ivy crawling and clinging closely to a wire fence.
Brick buildings standing, feet apart, looking over the streets.
Flowers shooting out their beautiful colors to passers-by.
As the wind blows their fragrance to noses all along the street,
it also throws the stagnant smell of filthy garbage at their feet.

    Dear poet, I invite you to read my poem Wind in the Afternoon, which is also a descriptive poem, like yours. I love such descriptive, as they lack unnecessary emotions - they show us things as they are, don't they? ? I love your poem. Short and sweet. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
