Grass

Stand and wave tall, slender, blades of envy
While through you blow, the cool spring wind

Thick carpet of ever changing pattern,
One day, I will become a part of you
As time takes toll, upon my wooden tree
Releasing me to be absorbed by you

As a part of you, I shall wait for the cool spring wind
To blow me to and fro
To be moistened by a summer shower
To become the background for a flower

Free from the cares of a dull, drab world
Like a flag to wave in the wind unfurled

Wow! A very delightful and vividly eloquent poem! I feel refreshed by a gentle breeze just by reading it, reminds of the rolling tuscan hills.
