Nature's Jewels M-Z.

Updated on April 3, 2014
Source

Hello and once again I have enjoyed creating another hub I this series.

I am learning so much myself as I write and publish each one.

No matter how bleak the world is; no matter if we are feeling a little down nature will always provide us with colour, sweet scents will inspire us and the wondrous cycle of life will make those words flow freely.

If you would like to read yesterday's hub 'Nature's Jewels A L' first or the other hubs in this series then follow the links below.

Today's song choice is 'Draw Dros Yr Enfys' which is the Welsh version of 'Over The Rainbow' and is sung by the very talented Tara Bethan.

I am Miss Mallow

Come here and sit by me;

We'll hide by the roadside

to see what we can see.


x


A colour or a gem

The awesome nasturtium;

But when Jack frost strikes

Perish doth each blossom.


x


As in each far pasture

An image of sheer bliss;

Stands tall and all seeing

The deep blushing Orchis.




x




Have you met the Pansy

Brushed velvet oh so soft;

Sometimes to adorn

Mother nature's precious croft.


x


Next to the Kingfisher

The Queen of the Meadows fair;

At time so protected

By her own fluffy hair.


x


Now I sing a happy song

About The ragged Robin;

To play on life's flute

Together all a-dancing.

How sweet and so dainty

Is the Wild Strawberry flower;

In suh a delicate stance

Lies a great anmazing power.


x


So similar to the Clover

Stands a Rose Pink thistle;

Twinkling in the sunshine

Nature's breeze will whistle.

x


Have you heard of the vetch

Many versions thrive;

Oh how they do adorn

Nature's beautiful hive.


x


To be a lonely Wallflower

To fear a passion bold;

Grown in nooks and crannies

Each lonely tale untold.


x


Oh how he loves to taunt

The mischievous Deadnettle;

Behind that golden glow

Am impish grin to settle.


x


And now we do arrive

At a blushing Zinnie;

Hues of pinks and golds

My heartbeats so happy.

Source

My life so full of riches

That money cannot buy;

My world now oh so bright

Happiness swells sky high.


Source

To go all through the alphabet

Many jewels did unfold;

My world oh so wondrous

Many chapters yet untold.



Source

To share

Life's precious gems

Treasures oh so tender

To share all nature's magic spells

Hearts full of dreams souls oh so full of hope

Mother Nature's beautiful gems

So sweet and yet so strong

How my heart yearns

To share.



Source

Acrostic : Alphabet.

A heart full of wonder

Lands full of treasures

Peaceful and so serene

Honey Bees collecting nectar

A treasure chest full of nature's charms

Beloved become each blossom each scent

Evolving into life's circle

Tender and precious.

Source

Each moss laden path

Blossom scents lead the way

So light each footstep.

x

Words soft and tender

Treasured that brand new love song

Flowing on the breeze.

I hope you enjoyed today's visit and this one was going to be the last in this series but hmmm I shall see..................................

Here's wishing you all a wonderful day and lots of love from my little corner of Wales.

      I discovered this article with much delay. But better late than never, really enjoyed your alphabets with poetry once again. Great pictures too to go along!

      Unfortunately I lost the file of the list of nature's alphabets that I was working on (nature that K2 and I encountered during our hikes). I am still under shock.

      Oh, how I love the video. This is the first time I have heard of this beautiful singer. This happens to be my favorite song as I'm sure it is with others.

      Your poetic language of the flowers expresses in beautiful detail just how I feel. Nature is my best friend. She welcomes me and soothes my heart each day.

      I will pin this to my board - Nature - and share with Twitter, g+ and H+. So beautiful Eddy. Just like you. Love, Audrey
