Poem: “The Poet’s Corner”

“The Poet’s Corner”

My first post back in 2010. Where has the time flown? Recently, I reformatted the sonnet and photo to the image pictured above.

I stop to rest beneath theses leaf-laden
Boughs beside this quietly flowing stream.
Finding sanctuary in this haven,
I idly sit to ponder, muse and dream
Or softly speak a poet’s hymn or two,
With the warm sun gently cascading down
Through the dancing leaves and shimmering hue,
Joyous birdsong twittering all around.
At times I hear on the whispering wind
The Muse’s voice murmuring soft and sweet.
Inspired, I inscribe her melodies with my pen
In a notebook from which whose white sheaves I reap
     Sun-ripened words to last the winter long
     That slowly distill into summer’s song.
A customized print can be ordered at Fineartamerica.com.
