Mellow Light

I think forsythia is mellow light,
Beyond the confines of all wrong or right.
That warms war weary eyes against the night.

    Like this, the three lined stanzaic structure, good rhymes.(One small point, did you capitalise Forsythia with intent
    in the last verse, and in the first verse not?) . Excellent write.

    Hi Sandra - this is a perfect poem in structure - metre - rhyme and content. It merits a MAX. The FORSYTHIA is so beautiful and bright that it is a perfect metaphore for linking our love and prayer and God's love to those who are our protectors.
    V 1 The colour of Forsythia to lift our spirits and 'Warm war weary eyes against the light' V 2 The power of the Forsythia to release from pain and restore hope 'Something resembling Sun will rise again'. V 3 The beauty of Forsythia to eclipse 'The ignorance of war' V 4 The touch of the Creator in Forsythia 'Like a Prayer' enables us to 'Pray for them a Spring somewhere' - Excellent Love in Poetry - JOHN.

    This message of 'spring some where' - gives us the strength to carry on,
    With hope in our hearts and our trust in God! 10!

    more than anyone else, those suffering in war need to be reminded of beauty, hope and love....and the forsythia with its sunshine of color can very well be that reminder of one's humanity.....

    There's a website somewhere.... poets against war.

    As a thirty six year around the military type of guy
    This poem makes me want to cry
    For articulating so beautifully
    What my bruised soul has been denied. Bill Grace
