Treasure Island

Valsa George

Swaddled In Glory!

Across the sky is a blaze of gold
When the dawn quietly begins to unfold
Each morn is a fresh wonder
As the night willfully bows down to surrender

Every minute is a new creation
With scenes and sights of great sensation
With every passing hour, new vistas unfold
Bringing insights varied and visions manifold

The blades of grass glow in sparkling dew
As the sun makes his customary march anew
Over the expanse of the brightening sky
Feathered folks to different directions fly

Here and there are plants in bloom
That dispel all clouds of gloom
Bees hum round opening flowers
Rabbits and squirrels come out from hidden covers

The gust of breeze that blows over
Brings scents so sweet in the morning air
The mountains that tower so high
In grandeur seem to touch the sky

The cuckoo and the magpie sing in joy
Their nestlings have nothing to annoy
The cascading falls sound the stringed trumpet
Running down from the mount’s heady summit

As Nature thus pipes a thousand songs
In capturing sounds and melodious tunes
In my heart is born a melody
That I shall pour out in euphonic rhapsody

    This is a very detailed write of nature in all of its beauty, scents and glimmer.
    To awake and see the sunrise just before the break of dawn is really a
    beautiful sight. Just to sit in the backyard and commune with nature is a
    relaxing and soothing event. You wrote this one in all splendor. (Report) Reply

    There is some sense of self realisation in this poem. ITs more than a sense. It is the essence I believe. The realisation of the beauty. As ever you have painted beautifully ma'am! (Report) Reply

    'My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky' a tradition of classic poetry that you've followed nicely. I enjoyed the poem and feel it's divinity in my heart, dear Valsa ma'am. (Report) Reply
