The poem is below.


In Nature Rapt

She is the Goddess of Day
Her first duty is to Dawn
She paints a pale peach skyway
Spills dew on the waiting lawn.

Nature is her; she holds sway 
Over each flower, fawn and swan
Her's is the leafy archway
Mountain vistas yet un-sewn

Each Season  she will obey
 Over and over redrawn
 Her elaborate bouquet
 Eagerly waited upon.

From Summer's shady greenway
To an icy echelon 
From Spring's brief flowery entree
To Autumn's fiery walk-on

She is the Goddess of Day
Forever held by her song
Gifts we can never repay
Enraptured we look on.

For Broken Wings Form R contest.

From Summer's shady greenway To an icy echelon From Spring's brief flowery entree To Autumn's fiery walk-on These four lines are so very creative. While upping the ladder of imagination you created a splendid poem to be proud of. Hope all is well Suzanne, just dropping in with friendly hellos today xo

Oh this is so lovely SuZ. I hope you will post it at PFT. How is your house coming? I miss you and your poetry. Molly moved back towards Hawaii and we got together last week. Love, Connie

Hi Connie: Great to see you. I apologize for being out of touch. This move has been monumental but we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Such a small joy to be able to write a poem. Thanks for inviting me to post it. Big Hugs, SuZ
