Soft Whispers

Soft whispers sweep the arid fields
Of wheat grown white for harvestís yield
Free-flowing in the warmth of June
That tempts the wind to drift in tune
With childrenís laughter raised in dreams
Hopscotching over roads and streams
Intrigued by spirits who rejoice
Surrendered hearts in soft still voice
Pressing gently to the ear
Enticing all who will to hear
Robins, finches, wrens and jays
Sharing joys this summer's day.


God bless,
Lighthouse Bob

Dear Bob, this is so touchingly beautiful, that I need to fight back the tears. I hear the tune and I feel it deeply.

Thank you for this precious gift.

A perfect acrostic btw.!

Love,
Margherita

whisperingwalt,

Thank you so much for your compliment and, also, so you know, much of what was written in this poem came from thoughts inspired by your pen name.

I thought you were looking in our back yard as you wrote this one, Bob.  Outside our dining window we have all the birds you named, plus squirrels and rabbits.  Ah nature at it's best!

Your work is flawless and I enjoyed each and every word of it.

God bless,
Rae

Being from Manitoba in Canada, where wheat is "our thing" this sure touched my heart.

You are indeed a wonderful painter of words.

Thank you for the Big Smile, Angel4aKing, and, also, although my response is way, way, way overdue, Iím sure, and Iím very very sorry for being soooooo late, anyways, Thank You, Weeping willow and Mysteria, for your very kind and inspirational words and Iím glad that my poem inspired some warm thoughts for both of you.

Love and God bless,
-Bob
