Oh The Beauty Of Meadow Grass


Oh the beauty of meadow grass
As hoisted blades
In their unadulterated jade
Softly flutter
In a metrical cadence
In the tempestuous November wind

Oh the beauty of meadow grass
Soft evergreen lattices
Strewn with the wines of the prairies
Forming labyrinths and catacombs
To the industrious ants
As they scamper about in garrisons
To edulcorate the reservoirs
With stocks of nectar

Oh the beauty of meadow grass
For beneath the gossamer carpets of jade
A bed of seed await
To entice passengers of an avian pedigree
For a hearty banquet
To metamorphose a herbaceous ocean
To a terrestrial rainbow of color
Decorated with the kaleidoscopic plumage
Of the angels of nature

Oh the beauty of meadow grass
Paved in empyrean jade
Orchestrating
The quintessential divan of nature
For the advent of amorous lovers
As groping palms and lunging lips
Converse bereft of speech
In the pidgin of love

Oh the beauty of meadow grass........

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
