                  The delight of silly

I sat upon a fence of yearn to see what I could.
Waited for the meadowlark, to stop if it would.
Sing for me or pass me bye or rest upon a tree.
To see if yes or not, it was playing coy with me.

The field was full of daises with daffodils a distance.
I looked upon this beauty with the slightest of resistance.
My hope, to leap the fence and roll around in free.
But I did not wish to be myself, the only one you see.

So I waited for the meadowlark the song that it would sing
And I listened and listened to the sound of its flavoring.
And I could not make my mind up, it seemed a mystery.
When suddenly it touched me and turned it into history.

For now I'm off the fence and plucking daisy leaves,
She loves me, she loves me not, the latter I believe.
And I walk among the daffodils with a paper and a quill.
Making up silly rhymes like a mocking bird in trill.

And if for but a moment, I've left this mundane world,
I'd blame it on the meadow lark and song it did unfurled.

Seymour, might you settle for a meadowmuse?? (I love to sing...)     

Lovely verse, this. Sweetened whimsy, to be sure.

I think that she would be a fool not to love you...


Very light hearted Sy and lovely...

'She loves me, she loves me not, the latter I believe.
And I walk among the daffodils with a paper and a quill.
Making up silly rhymes like a mocking bird in trill.'

She would be a fool not to love you.

Seymour~

I like you silly
and willy-nilly.
Strolling through the grass
and falling on your *Ahem*
Picking daisy petals quick
and hoping 'love' will stick.
Playing funny rhymes with skill ...
if she don't love you
WE ALL WILL !

She does and so do we !
Love ya'
~*Marge~

Sy,
  This is a clever poem. It's got a little seriousness in it masked by the rhymes. I  liked the "fence of yearn" and the "pass me bye" lines. You might even have another poem in these words and don't realize it.

To all the above, I don't know how I missed thanking you individually, I must be getting senile. You are all my wonderful friends and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'll try not to let it happen again. But no guaranties.
