Splendor In The Grass

~*Marge Tindal*~

Return me to the splendor
among the grasses green
Sweet memories waiting
in the land of ever-seem

Stroll me across the meadow
damp with morning dew
Daffodil upon the hill
preens in every yellowed-hue

Poppies dancing on the breeze
blown in gentle sway
Soar me now, kite-in-flight
string me far away

Ease me down in grasses
fertile with memoried stain
Caress me gently-peppered
with softly falling rain

Wake me when the quilting hour
falls across the sky
Walk me through the shadowed-grasses
parting on gentle sigh



*Dedicated to MarkB~
Hope this is 'next' enough !

Oh Marge that is so beautiful and so well done. What a natural poet you are.....

"Ease me down in grasses
fertile with memoried stain.
Caress me gently-peppered
with softly falling rain.

Wake me when the quilting hour
falls across the sky
Walk me through the shadowed-grasses
parting on gentle sigh."

Sheer poetic delight flows in every line.


Great stuff!!!!!

Take care...........ethome...............

Marge,
I could smell the grass, and feel the wetness of the dew on my feet when I read this. Geez, so exhilerating! Well done Marge.

Jeez---does this ever take me back.  It has been along time since I have been able to enjoy something such as this.  I think I just need to take the time but first someone to share it with.   Great imagery.

I can smell the flowers and the grass coming from your words.  Aaahhh, what a lovely scent and splendid picture that comes to mind!  Thanks Mark for inspiring this piece!!!

"Wake me when the quilting hour
falls across the sky"

Marge, I believe this is one of the most engaging lines I have ever the pleasure to read...and what a loverly poem in which to find it!

Melissa~
I do appreciate that Mark inspired me
with his comment, "What's next?"
in another reply.
Glad you found it to your liking.  

LoneWolf~
I knew you would like it.
Thank you for letting me know.  

Claire~
You have a knack for finding the phrase
in my work that also is special to me.
I liked it and am glad you noticed it.
Thank you so very much.

All right Marge,

If your going to write these kinds of things when I'm out of town and gone... Well, I'm just gonna have ta tell you that your going ta have ta copy me all the best around. I was kinda thinking how the grass might of felt being all smooshed and..?

Hardy Har_lucky-D

Ode By William Wordsworth

Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;

In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be;
In the soothing thoughts that spring
Out of human suffering;
In the faith that looks through death,
In years that bring the philosophic mind.

Ode.
By Wordsworth, William.
Sometime between 1801 and 1807.

the pleasures in life that we seek to enjoy.
Glad to have your comments.

Marge- I came back to thank you for the lovely poem and the kindness in your heart.  When I read it the first time I was unable to express how much you touched me and I do thank you.  Please check your e-mail.  Hearty hugs to you my friend.   And yes I do need to and did yesterday make time thanks to you.
