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.

"Hi Andrea: Yes I know your Goddess poems and love them. I have had such an exhausting year with the move and renovation. Just got back from a cruise to England on the Queen Mary 2. It was fabulous but I would just love to hibernate now and do some creating. Will stop by your work soon. Will send a you a Soupmail tomorrow with some news I found out recently and ask for your opinion. Hugs, SuZ"

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
