An Invitation to Dance

When fields gleam aureate and song birds sing and transient stars in clusters scintillate, when sweet perennials are coaxed by spring to blossom forth, he comes with sprightly gait. He wends his way along the mountain trails past opalescent rush of streams and rills, goat-footed, on the paths that ribbon dales and wind around and up and down small hills. Then nymphs appear as, through the woods, he trips to flower-smitten meadows. Fancy-free, he leads them with his reed held to his lips, till blithely they embrace his rhapsody. So hear the music; watch the wood nymphs spin. . . Then captured by sheer merriment, join in! For Nathan A.'s ANY POEM GOES Poetry Contest

    Wonderful Sonnet Andrea and a deserved winner, i've never seen any of your poems like this, one in the style of wordsworth, my favourite style one which i try and emulate as much as possible. i can see why Brian would like this, (it is so english) i hope you do not mind me saying that. harry

    I really enjoyed this beautiful sonnet, Andrea!! I find it so cool that you made it sound in a way that the first thought that popped to mind as I read this was "lilting" --very very apt I think! you sure have talent and I can only really wish to write sonnets as effortlessly as you do-- which reminds me I should try it soon! I sure am missing out on your newer writes- haha good thing that you keep on winning :) hugs to you & congrats! :) nikko :)
