Valsa George


Evening Breeze


Cool and calm is the evening breeze
Travelling miles, she brings us ease
On wings so fleet, as a fairy she comes
Through woods and trees, she sweetly hums

An impish visitor, the dancer of the sphere
An awaited presence, everyone's cheer
Singing and dancing, hopping and skipping
With the bells on her anklets, ringing and tinkling

Across the corn, she merrily moves
From where she alights, no one knows
None can see her but sense her touch
Shivering leaves fear her clutch

She travels downhill, winding the dale
Swift and light, yet strong and hale
Fevered minds, with a touch, she heals
Her nimble movements, everyone feels

As she wings her way through mango groves
Whistling and shaking the fruit laden boughs
Ripening mangoes fall to the ground
And children joyfully rally round

Over land and water, she plays her tricks
Like a flash of lightning, she swiftly flips
And furtively retreats to her far away nest
To roam and rollick after an interim rest

    ..........it is a poem meeting all the five requisites of a good verse that meets the eyes to befriend the discerning mind later. This breeze has the touch of realism and the might of naturalism. Fine write, Madam Valsa (Report) Reply

    the beauty in poetic words in flow of cool -
    As she wings her way through mango groves
    Whistling and shaking the fruit laden boughs

    Lovely Valsa. How I wish the breeze you write of blew around here instead of the biting cold wind that is currently cutting through my bones. (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
