Marshland

There’s a marshland where I come from –
              Wet and slowly dying as aren’t we all and yet,
Still full of life like flying
              Egrets and alligators roaming ‘round
Down in the bowels of this bog
              And that’s not all.
Pink and purple lilies and fern grow tall
              With bees buzzing, singing, pollinating
Wildflowers here and there
              And other unseen forces in the air.  Impossible 
To describe them all, however,
              As they may be partly mystical and partly weather.
Causing me to sit and daydream in this
              Misty marshland waste, waiting
For summer to end and winter
              To take its place.
