In This Wood

===============

In this wood, great trees have grown.
Deep in seats of sand and stone,
steeped in creeks of Pan's cologne,
each his sweeping brother's clone

From the score of seeds I've sown
in this wood, great trees have grown.
And of glories father's own,
none's seen more than those I've known

Alto dins of summer flown,
fall begins her tenor moan.
In this wood, great trees have grown
tall in winter's baritone

Life bestows no chaperone.
Each must toe his line alone.
At it's close, let mine have shown,
in this wood, great trees have grown

===============

This is great Lycia, wow what beautiful use of the quatern form. I particularly love the verse about autumn and winter. Fabulous imagery. :-)

Thank you! I had a look - they are wonderful - all so evocative. I will have to try this form myself. In the mean time, I have followed you as I read one or two more of your poems and they are right up my street! I will go back and read a few more when I have a bit more time.

Thank you, Nina. I love this form because it's so challenging but also because the structure seems to lend to a more melancholy theme, almost automatically. I have a few more in my poetry list that you may enjoy (if you care to delve that deep into someone else's vault) please check them out and tell me what you think!
