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

Thank you..
I'm going to be honest with you, most of the poems I have seen so far have either been melancholy, only focus on emotion, or both. It was very refreshing to read something lively and beautifully descriptive. I especially like the message of the beauty of nature and life. I also like the vocabulary/rhyming and how it gives the whole poem a vintage feel to it. All in all, it was a very enjoyable read.

Yeah... it fits quite nicely I think.

The whole thing is of fantastic form.

You're a word painter of beautiful mind pictures.

Thank you Christine, hope you are enjoying the warm weather. Wedding watching tomorrow ??
The poem feels very genuine, and I'm pretty sure the seamless descriptions and theme helps in pushing the message along. It has immense substance and also great flow, I enjoyed this brief read.
