Evening Dew

When twilight's spectral fingers fold
Sweet blossoms of every hue;
Some half opened bud will hold
Its pearls of evening dew.

Touched with every sunshine hour
The eternal earth has shown
All the perfume of the flower
Till it finally becomes its own.

We that wait may never find
A chance to sing our praise;
For memories we seek to bind
Take the scent of fading days.

The poet who has never spent
His words in futile strain;
For him the misty dewdrops lent
Their diamonds to the rain.

Unfastened in their fragrant bell
They tell their own dear tale;
Then from the cloud from which they fell
Their haunting scents exhale.

    This is so beautiful Liz. You paint such a beautiful picture here. I could see my garden in the evening, the dew upon the roses and smell the night blooming jasmine. There is such a relaxing feel to this piece. Great job. God Bless, JB

    I am exhilarated to read such a marvellous piece of art by u Eliza...:) . I also appreciate ur comments on her encounter with a paedophile...this was quite painful to write . I loved reading ur poems too...

    Only a poet could see the dew as "diamonds," Elizabeth. We do need to see the beauty of each day as we never know how many we have left. I can relate to that poet who feels like his words are spent "in futile strain." Beautiful work! Love, Carolyn

    Hi Chum, I've been missing church, life is topsy turvy and I'm rolling with my days. But when I read your work, it's like I'm sitting there, in the sanctuary, eyes closed, hearing what I'm supposed to... I become more aware of the world again and my tiny role in it and I'm grateful to my "Giver". Thanks for your comments and I'm glad my tidbits touch you, too. I'm feeling overwhelmed this year- in both the good and bad ways. Poetry written and read helps. Blessing, dear! Hugs, Cyndi
