Theme: Nature


As this scene comes to fullest view
It seems only the painter's art
Can do it any justice to record
The deft brush stroke shorthand
The perfect depiction of leaf.

Poetry can but try to curve upward
With these deep avenues or extend
Its weighty line across the lake
Express the solar dazzle
Accommodate these grand contours.

But of a sudden I heard trees
Whisper by the water's edge
And knew a moment of tranquility
Whispers no portrait ever knew
Of poetry this side of words.
