Emerald Forests

Emerald Forests Emerald forest hiding from man's curse if found, its never better , always worse. Wretched destroyers we are in this abode in our arrogance we are firmly sold. Greed for taking everything in our path we in our false pride deliver our wrath. Astonished that some may in this rebel when seeking their deaths, damn them all to hell. If true, the meek inherit this sweet earth then our dear souls must love for all their worth. Where river and bend meet with shining sky Nature teases us to ask how and why. Shall we pray that emerald forests hide? Take action on that we can not abide? Robert J. Lindley, 11-29-2016 Syllables Per Line: 10 Total # Syllables: 140 Total # Words: 108

Wow! A wonderful sonnet deserving all gold of the world. Indeed, especially these strange days of postmodernism ”our dear souls must love...” Best regards and thanks for visit in my poor forest of awkward thoughts waiting for their time to grow into light.
