COLORADO DREAMS

A Poem by Sammi
"

A poem of my home I like a lot! :)

"




Tall silver aspen frame soft evergreen,

the mighty elk across deep valleys roam,

in heavens high a billion stars are seen;

I’m thankful Colorado is my home.

Amongst Liatrus on the mountainside,

White Clover grows midst slender Pussytoes,

from Flagstaff Mountain, Boulder shows its pride,

lush bouquet born of Mallow softly flows.

Folk living there are known for friendly ways,

that welcome strangers as if native-born,

as though no other place on earth displays

the glories there that Nature’s hands adorn.

Come meet me in yon glens beside cool streams,

embrace us there in Colorado dreams.

Author's Note

Sammi
This one was a style taught to me by a poet teacher called Richard the first time I was a member more than a year ago and helped me with the words and corrected to make it read better, it took me over a week to get it right and he made me use correct punctuation and not all caps to begin the lines, it was very hard and I almost quit before it was finished lol! I read one of KLGoode's (Lyn Anderson) in the same style with the same teacher Richard [http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/amendoim1988/1805334/] that made me remember this and It is one of my favorites now but I never tried one again -- I hope you like it too though! :)

I love this poem. It is my style somewhat. I didn't have the luxury of someone teaching me poetry form. I write it from within. I should have started when I was in the 1st grade. I do have a way with words. i'M STILL FEELING MYSELF OUT WITH WORDS OF LOVE & WISDOM.

You are welcome Sammi.
My-my, Sammi,
How did I miss reviewing this one for you, being my student and all … I just don't know?
I recall when you learned it, and how you struggled with the iambics, but persevered, and just look at the gem you composed … Sammi, it is simply beautiful, and your flair for design creates the perfect setting for your absolutely gorgeous Sonnet.
The imagery of your words, alone, make this a heavenly piece of poetry, and the spot-on iambics and rhymes make it virtually dance up off the page into our minds, hearts, and souls … a truly amazing work of poetry.
I was sooo proud of you when you stuck it out and completed this, Sammi.

You made my spirit soar, and I thank you for asking me to teach you … hugs 'n warmest smiles of sincere gratitude! ⁓ Richard : )

An absolutely beautiful poem of your home State. Our mutual friend Richard guided me to this piece. I'm grateful he has. This poem has wonderful imagery throughout, and proves to be a pleasure to read. Well done!

Your care and love for poetry and your home-state is so very evident here, and, consequently, touches the heart with an enormous smile and admiration. Beautiful picture to head it... full of colour and warmth.. rather like the poet!
