My Delight


There you lay
at the bottom
of the lake.

So beautiful
alone
waiting
unclaimed.

I,
in wonderment
of this
lovely red
rose.

So alluring
passionate,
precious.

To claim her
would be my
delight.

    A rose that grows at the bottom of a lake?
    One rare rose indeed
    I have never heard of such
    To pluck red rose and raise above sea
    would surely not the thing to be
    Such preciousness should bs alive, be free
    And taken away only in our memory. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
