Best Elizabeth Wesley Poems

+ Fav Poet


A lily in the pond
A mountain beyond;
A blue sky in spring
A bird on the wing.
The rippling call
Of a waterfall;
A soft spring rain
A robin's refrain.
Fields full of flowers
Spending long hours
With arms around you
Speak words not a few.
Such little things
To remember for years;
The songs we sing
Memories with tears.

    Dear Liz, you have this knack for expressing such deeply felt beauty about life and yet, simultaneously capturing the sadness of lost love. It's what I admire most about you and your writing...its so brutally honest about all the good, the bad and the ugly of this world we all share and experience. But your focus is on the beauty and for that I'll keep coming back for more. God bless you my dear poetic friend.

    Liz,, all memories end up with joy or tears... a very pleasant poem... very pretty lines.... sadly the tears always express their way out,..p.d.

    Sorry Lizzie, I did not receive my Soup Mail...I don't know what the deal is. I hate it that I can't get it...I would like to get your message, it's just not showing up. Thanks for your interest and your caring to write to me. I really appreciate it. I hope there's just a delay in the Soup Mail and that I'll get it soon. I couldn't find your Poetry Soup address...Maybe I'll find it!

    Hey, this shows me that less can be more. I love how you wrote, "speak words not a few" in a poem with few words. Clever wordsmith. You're both classic and fresh. Cheers and hugs, Cyndi

    Very nice write here Lizzie! I enjoyed this rhyming scheme! Awesome job! btw, I never received your soup mail you sent...sorry about that. also I have been struggling lately with personal problems, and am depressed lately thus the reason for the lack of posted poetry and lack of comments...I'm just struggling right now. I really miss PoetrySoup but just can't find the time for it, nor the willpower...just so you know I will be back real soon and hopefully refreshed and invigorated! GoodNight Lizzie

    Simple snapshots of nature and love intertwined. I can envision a photo album of all these images, Elizabeth. Beautiful poem...I picture this as a song played in e minor with a flute. :) Gwendolen.
