Where Mockingbirds Sing all Day


I am a wildflower of an extraordinary beauty
I sprang up one morning in early spring
at the mountain's edge at the very edge
where? a place lost in time
where? a most peaceful place
a place where mocking birds sing all day
a place where water falls splash splash
and little bear cubs chase mom in the spring
although I have been blown away
to another place, by winds from the west
I still long for this place
A peaceful place of rich mountain soil
a beautiful place with sweet summer rain
a place where wild flowers still grow
and mocking birds sing all day

    A lovely poem that gives a sense of serenity like the serene place described.... I feel it is an exotic place of wild flowers reverbrating with the music of mocking birds! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
