The Dark Wood

(Re: Old Poems)

Far away on the moor, wind creeps quiet: When the golden rays fade and the day's gone; From a nook rustling in the woods of night, Cries a whippoorwill ever and anon. Thickets skirting and swirling untill dawn; She wended her way, swept by Queen Anne's lace; To be cloak'd by dark waters, heap'd upon The sweet enchanted blossoms of her face; The woods dwell in slumber, and shadows hide all trace. In the bosom of night's darkness, she lay Hiding behind the drowsy shades of moon; Once gleaming brook murmurs under the sway Of her gambols in the roses wind strewn, Beneath bowers of a magical rune; A dew spent lingering about afloat, So shall the bleak wind before it dies soon 'pon the autumn wood, fading in dim note; And souls lull'd to repose wearing the midnight coat. (22/4/2013) (Spenserian Stanzas)

    wow.. It's like I'm reading Keats! (The very few that I have read) It is beautiful and draws such and enigmatic and serene picture of nature. Let your words flow... Let your thoughts glow... :)

    such a beautiful flow Guatami - this reminded me of Wuthering Heights with the imagery:-) Hugs Jan xx
