In Clover Green

In clover green we lay, our eyes on a bouquet of white and wooly flowers, heaven's grand display. As each bud drifted by, as if to make us sigh, they changed into a downy heart in azure sky - the perfect prelude to romance that new March day. Consumed by passion play; our hair in disarray, we heard above us in the tree a squawking jay. He seemed to want to split us up; we'd not comply! In clover green we lay. We felt like children savoring a sweet parfait, who linger in that special place they want to stay. We pledged a love that no one ever could defy and never questioned what would be should springtime die. Inhaling scent of heather and each blossomed spray, in clover green we lay.

the poem IS well written and pretty. Something about this form bugs me....It isn't you, so don't go getting crappy:) I know you wont tho! Hey I wish some of these poems in contests didn't have to have the same names, I read like 20 Wanderlusts and it confuses the heck out of me. I know that has nothing to do with this poem, but that would make too much sense for me to type something that was relevant, Right?! Take care, Keep writing. Hey I see a TON of FOOTLES. Is that yir idea, ala BrianStrand?

I thought Id read this before, But after reading, I don't think so, It is not my favorite, normally I wouldn't say that, but I know you know it is not a Negative remark...it mostly just pertains to me and certain form not resonating with my reading patterns, I don't have the best reading ability....ANd Maybe I have told you this before, BUt That is one of the main reasons I am drawn to writing. It is a challenge. You prob. can relate bc I think u enjoy challenges of contests! Maybe I am way off?

Congrats and I have no CLUE as to how to write these forms of poetry but you have most definitely made me sigh and my hair is in rather shocking disarray as well. Sadly, it's only pillow-hair...

This is really cool and flows very well. I love the squawking jay part it seems hilarious to imagine it in a literal sense. And I really like the last two lines it really ends the poem on a beautiful note.
