On A Balmy Summers Night

On A Balmy Summers Night

A Poem by Gee
"

Just simple words

"
Shooting stars through diamond studs
the pallid moon looked on,
a breeze roused sleeping summer leaves
but briefly, then was gone.

A fox bark echoed, trailed away
through spinny and beyond,
nothing stirred, the lillies slept
atop the night stilled pond.

'cross barleyed acres all at peace
through farmyard ever on,
silence played on balmy night
a symphony an' song.

'Til sunrise lit the eastern sky,
then man stirred, woke again,
serenaded soft to 'nother day
by bird calls sweet refrain.

How beautiful this life we live
what wonders to behold,
more beauty found in nature's gifts
than platinum and gold

A whim sparks beauty. Sometimes the less we examine the end product still shines. You did a great job taking the reader on a most tranquil journey.

My pleasure Gee
I would love to be able to write so eloquently before jotting off. It takes me so long, and even then I'm not always right.

I like every verse of this. You speak of a place I would love to stay. :)

The woods and open fields are just a 5 minute stroll from my home. The pooch and I walk them often, .. read more
I love this. There is nothing more beautiful than the universe and all its glorious splendors. Well done.

Gee, that's a beautiful portrayal of a quiet night. Really awesome. Can't believe you coined all that "quickly" "before toodling off to work"!!!
Hats off to you👍

Thank you William
Yup it all fits together nicely Gee and is a flowing, well crafted, eloquent poem. Might I suggest the final line as 'than plat'num or gold.' In saying that I have only read it in and not checked the metre.

I agree dear friend.
"How beautiful this life we live
what wonders to behold,
more beauty found in nature's gifts
than plat'num, silver, gold. "
The above lines perfect. I love my time near the lakes and the forest. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.
