Whilst walking through the woods

Whilst walking through the woods one day A crystal brook there, shone so gay The sun was shining oh' so bright As brook reflected all it's light Buzzing insects all around Oh' they made a delightful sound Birds flew upwards to the sky These parrots made a hue and cry Carpet of flowers with lovely scent It seemed this morn way heaven sent The flowers opened to the sun This walk for me was so much fun Sheep bleated from far away Oh it was such a lovely day

Just lovely Vera... I am a nature's child myself, and enjoy walking dogs or riding horses in the woods. And I am always thankful for beautiful days such as you have so eloquently described here :) (except for the insects haha!)

I love the last stanza..."Carpet of flowers with lovely scent," what a picturesque line of beauty. Enjoyed the imagery and last couplet.

I enjoyed reading your sonnet this morning..It made me think of spring which is still a couple of months away where I live..It helped me live spring's atmosphere while in the midst of deep freeze..Sara

Hi Kim thank you so much for the lovely visit, as for contests I really don't consider myself a poet enough to enter but Peter on the other hand is but he doesn't like contests anyway, he just likes to get his words across, will drop you a line soon okay, in the meantime take care.........Vera.(mum).x

Lindsay thank you so much for the comment, I guess you are an Aussie as well so we would say walking through the bush but same, same, trouble is our bush over here keeps disappearing, so many houses going up, such a shame, quite often Peter and I do escape down South and find the bush, take care my friend.......Vera............

Vera it seems that you and Peter both have a way about writting about the beauty of nature, enjoyed reading this poem, it was simply lovely a delight to read, thanks for your comment on my polar cubs and yes I agree it was a sad poem to write, but I was very sad that day, and then I watched a discovery channel special about the polar bears and I was off with this to write about my inpirational write of these poor little cubs, cheri
