Make-believe


A four-leaf clover could be growing in a field.
I’d never stoop to pluck in case delusion was revealed.
I’d daisy-chain caprice or blend a whimsy potpourri,
imagining it grew that way for me.

A fresh love poem could be flashing through the sea.
I’d not use line or net because it’s perfect swimming free,
but I could chase red herring through translucent truthful blue,
pretending it was made for me by you.

    I once found a six leaf clover and then another and another and all of them were six leaf clovers... next to
    the Hanover Nuclear plant in Washington state.
    Much the same are love poems which come with long lines of pedigrees. (Report) Reply

    A lovely poem composed with a romantic heart and gentle hand.

    Playful language and a preference for the random and unexpected, the red herrings conspired by another for pleasure or diversion. Make believe = construct reality. (Report) Reply

    Growing up as a child finding a four leaf clover was one our greatest
    pastimes. Yes there is a four leaf clover we found many of them. Your
    poem speaks of finding a first love depicted in hunting for a four leaf clover.
    A lovely and refreshing poem. Appreciated. (Report) Reply

    This one makes me think, Diane, especially line 7.
    I used to find 4-leaf clovers at the bus stop as a child. They were no big deal.
    Can't wait to find out what loosened Gripe's sphincter either. (Report) Reply

    I get the fragrance of love blooming in some covert corner and it is wafted by the breeze! A lovely poem Diana! (Report) Reply

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
