Mary Forrester


Pure Delight


Skies awashed in blue and pearl
Sun reflects a beam speckled yellow, green and blue
A blush of poppies amidst the meadow, silver green
Gently swaying in the breeze
Springs rapport with days of yore
Rocks amidst the velvet moss
As waters trickled past
I dropped a pebble and watched the ripple
Until the waters edge
Tis with pure delight I sat amidst the trees
And listened to the music flow
