Best Harry Horsman Poems

+ Fav Poet


I meander through verdant valley
where meadows collide in windswept jade,
hillsides bathe in summer sunshine
and oceans of clouds, commit to shade.

Moorland sheep laze in woolly clusters
creating footpaths upon the hill,
busy hedgerow a rural city
scar of an era, is town head mill.

Vibrant coppice alive with creatures
leafy towers caress morning mist,
sunlight shines on distant window
across the valley, a sapphire twist.

Crag and beacon rise majestic
standing stone a monument to thrall,
sculptured by marauding seasons
an ancient culture’s, rocky stall.

Yet to chance upon misty patterns
softly sketched upon the hill,
I will savour these happy moments
awakening to, a distant trill.

Wharfedale, Yorkshire England

    Harry, This is masterful, it's a painting done with a pen. So well, that I can honestly say that I have been to Wharfedale, Yorkshire England on that same morning. I usually hesitate to use superlatives but this may be the best I've read on this site and will be a favorite. Thanks for sharing Harry, Craig
