When Lilacs Bloom

Mushrooms peak b'neath
the moon, and rabbits charm'd by grass

do swoon. Where tulip's petals once
so strong, unite the fall'n, one

last song. Once again the goslings
wander, stray not
 far from

nipping mother.
 The winds will

howl in sheets of rain,
 grandma snug,

in her shawl.
 Aside the fire, pen
will bend,

 this poem

 on         birchbark,


 the end.

    Very lyrical and beautifully written, but I was a bit confused by the line breaks. - Gary

    Its a beautiful poem and my eyes can see it all. I hope she finds her rocking chair comfortable, and the fire not too warm.

    Dear James, thank you for visiting! Why on earth you want to trade the paradise you live with the hell of the city? Ha-ha! Certainly you have your valid reasons! I lived in Montreal, Canada, for about twenty years and understand the beauty of nature as you describe it in your beautiful poem and your gracious comment! God bless you my friend, I hope you will still be around!
