Prelude

I did not catch the dying day’s last melting Nor heard its final sigh as it drifted into the deep blue It is now lost in the many folds of memory Partially stark and accurate, partially muffled in fog And the complete original gone forever I did not say goodbye If only time would hesitate The dew drops to hardened diamonds before the sun Time to hold on To feel the softest sand before it fades to cold black To hear the sparrows last song But the warm honey melted all away before I knew So I will greet the next And know that it too will melt The golden fall leaves are so beautiful But I love the green the best I will look long for the green And a new day awaits

A lovely way to end a poem Susan, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
