Lyric of the Marshland

Sweet butterscotch dew dimples on the lips of daffodils In flourishing fields fondled by four leaf clover Each scant spikelet of small white blooms playfully pleasure Rejoicing with fragrance within this meadow of elation Full throated birdsongs from summer clad throngs On painted wings twittering mimics to the joyful muse Singing...I belong, I belong, I belong Basking in the beams that blanket with golden warmth Flittering, fluttering, tittering, shimmering butterfly wings Catch the amicable air stream gliding to each flush of flowers While the bustling boom of buzzing bees flaunt and flirt With tiny tendrils and pistils laden with summer succulence Marigold marshes pop aloud with a scented stinky snout While the honeysuckle mingles and clings to save the day Dragonfly wings scour the sky above the tadpole's glug and splosh As caterpillars lazily race for the next bite on half-eaten leaves The standing creek lies bogged with meditative stillness As it ever recedes ritually to the shallows in the vaporous heat Filching foamy froth for snapping turtles, water striders and snails As it belches its murky gases from soggy bottom sludge This serendipitous splendor of sensuous sparkling soulfulness This symbiotic symphony of nature's stirring recital repeats In the eyes that behold, the nose that savors, the ears that revel The touch that embraces and the heart that remembers... This Heaven on Earth - This Heartsong! July 6, 2020 butter flies and marshes mellow Poetry Contest sponsored by Kai Michael Neumann
