Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Sunshine’s leisure graces her poise
flapping upward ‘pon  nature’s call,
polka-dotted, the field  enjoys
buzzes of hum with each landfall;
as cluster of leaves waves its shawl.

The tender ribs of light enshrine
her painted bodice that saves crops,
one wiggle snares pests in whooping line
while harvest thrills bug’s toil, non-stop
farmer's lady, tough yet divine.

Off she skates toward heavenly
a good luck charm that boldly flows,
on moonlit gloss like spring fairy
with dulcet wings, her flight bestows
unmindful of the heap she sows!

    My grandfather usually had a group of Lady's all around his windows of his upstairs rooms! It was quite creepy though to see them! I would always ask grandma to get rid of them so I could fall asleep in the room! They creeped me out! But this poem explained a perfect message of what the Lady's truly are! What a tremendous piece Nette, you can write about anything my friend! Great Work!!
