Copper Crown

Copper Crown

A Poem by D. Connolly
"

I was startled by the beauty of a tree in my neighbor's yard

"

Twas trick of yonder setting sun cast gold upon the grounds


The lengthening of shadows made monsters of my hounds


Looking towards the bleeding sky to watch the sun go down


I was romanced into poetry by the copper of your crown


I tried to name the color, but names, they do abound...


A lighter shade than ochre, not quite a sultry brown


More golden than a fallow, camel, or any tawny that I've found


No, there's nothing quite as pretty as the copper of your crown

I looked up, and the golden sunlight was perfectly highlighting the top of this tree. Who knows if it was a trick of the light, but the color was just startling and beautiful

My Ray of sunshine, thank-you
Beautifully captured Dani. Sometimes the description can turn out better than seeing any picture of it, it's in the imagination and the memory of the writer, which you convey here so well. Another beautiful happy thought to store in the memory vault for next time you're looking at not such a beautiful sky and the memory will brighten your day, as it just did mine :)

Startling and beautiful... as is this piece of art. Poetry written well, Ms. Connolly.

Brought me on a mini adventure through the mind of mental images through clever word play, which were both beautiful, by the way.

Much love, Ms. Connolly, well done,

Truly poetic.
