Ode of Abigail


Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you,
to render your nocturnal hours heart's play,
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

Was she in air a wraith from blue bayou,
Drenched form waiting persistently to sway;
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you.

Pelting on fields upwards to skies, eschew,
smiling dream-form made of raindrops and clay,
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay;

Out on the faraway to hold, the April's dew
Referred aboves, to winter clouds of gray,
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you.

Blissful to far, a stare she was, sea view,
redeemed in air to lift, Heaven's display;
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

She was unreached, lady agleam on blue,
perceiving Winter's cold raindrops air-spray,
Drops of twinkle rain were expecting you;
Ode of Abigail on waves foamed quay.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
