The Green Swamp
~*Marge Tindal*~

Among the towering Cypress trees
greeting my morning stomp
Fowl and fauna of nature dwells
in the bayou of The Green Swamp

Headway waters of Florida's
underground aquifer abounds
Sending life to all in clear, cool sips
of water's surround

Cranes, Egrets and Foxes play
among the Elderberry on display
'Tis the place that I love to roam
this Green Swamp that I call home

Wild Blackberries on the bush
brambled-sweet delight
Oh, the sound of Crickets chirping
far into the night

Fragrance of Magnolia
lemony-nostril treat
Butterfly-laden Sawgrasses
trod softly 'neath my feet

Moonlight covers The Green Swamp
putting all to rest
Great Horned Owl nestles
little ones in the nest

I breathe in the beauty
Green Swamp in all her splendor
Thinking this is just the way
my forefathers did remember

I do all I can
to keep the majesty pristine
Remembering the legendary spirits
walking through my dreams

If you have a chance
and happen to come my way
I'll share the wonder of The Green Swamp
on any given day

NetSwan~
Giggling here with heady delight ...
I live on Green Swamp Road ... so this
beauty is my front door and my back door.
I love it ... thank you for liking it too.

Marge this is beautiful and I'd love to share the bayou with you, share every magical sight and sound.  Great work!  And as requested I shall move this to op 7 so other friends can enjoy this piece as much as I did.
