The Zephyr's Army


'Away, ' I said, to where rays of light
Meet blades of grass, an army of soldiers
Waving at the command of their Zephyr.

Today I fled to where everything is alright.
At times the clouds roll in with a full artillery,
Ready to rain down an assault on all below. Now,

I lay instead, resting among the soldiers
Grateful to be fed. In this place I'm at ease.
In the wake of nature's war I've never known greater peace.

    Delightful! Wonderful symbolism between the elements of nature and the battle they constantly wage... Touché to you my dear! (Report) Reply

    Hmm this is annoying but not unusual. Not the poem that is lol. I commented on this before but I guess it didn't go through =/ This site sucks sometimes. Anyways. Wow I love the theme and how you're describing everything within the metaphors. Now I am not sure what the zephyrs are in this poem I had to look that word up. Didn't help much =/

    BUT it sort of reminded me of that movie honey I shrunk the kids where they had to battle different species within the grass and how everything that wasn't their size was like some new obstacle or warrior that they were coming up against. So I thought of the zephyrs as ants -.- and there was a war between weather and possibly a lawnmower cutting blades of grass that you munch on. I don't know but I enjoyed this poem very much =) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
