    This is lovely Janice. There are two palettes at work here- that of the artist seeing the shades and textures and interrelationships of colour and shadow and shape, - and that of the poet painting the scene in words that ebb and flow and make a portrait no less beguiling than the brush does. Great poem. (Report) Reply

    Love how you weave together earth and sky and capture all that is transient, the shadows, the clouds, the colours of autumn and then ground this with the closing 'earthbound' line. justine x (Report) Reply

    Jan, after reading what Fran wrote, it's like it's mirroring my exact same thoughts on this poem. Your brought your artful eye to this piece, I've been toying with all of the autumnal shades in my head for a tribute piece, no way could I have written anything so gorgeous. The dragon cloud jumps out at me and breathes fire! ! Fab! HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    You've painted this piece with the colours of your art, literally, and conjured up a whole palette of images. I do like the description of the clouds! Altogether a superb piece of poetry, Jan.

    This is utterly divine. I know the journey (did my degrees in Southampton) but I never quite saw it like this... your eye for detail and talent for penning it up into a thoroughly engaging, serene, pensive and appreciative piece is second to none. t x (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
