Inland Sonnet

Chaste of charm, our born contented spirit
Stands, grasping pondered, physical limits
Where we cast long memories of childhood
In modest places near the firewood

Bonded, our souls linger, recollecting
Warm woodsides and treasured lessons chanting
And our soft corner, near our gleaming stream
Where we sought a trout, a clover, a dream

We recollect the wild field as our own
The proper spirit, near home, where we roamed
And the perfume of the sweet garden rose
Every spring, glimpsing color bestowed

Are we not the loyal Inland People
Proud and noble, soaring like the eagle?

    "WHERE WE SOUGHT....." that was the line that I loved in this piece. this is the type of work I like coming from you but I noticed that your writing only happens once in a while with months in between. Well remember practice makes perfect and to be a good poet it takes lots of practice.

    Elizabeth Wesley is one of my favorite poets here if not my favorite. I recommend her a lot.

    A fine example of a sonnet poem. From your descriptive wording, it is easy to determine you are from Canada.

    And prairie grasses blow so soft. When Islands kiss the shore. A world with lovely birds aloft. Just who could ask for more.
