Palace Lagoon - a poem

Updated on April 30, 2011

Despite so many things,

soft, pink blooms have blossomed

amidst the beech tree's cupped fists;


and unnoticed by many,

the clapping of shimmering shears

has trimmed this rolling lawn

so that it glistens, redolent of green

at this gloaming hour.


I may have grown accustomed

to the - so white -

pluming swan

as he preens across the lagoon

almost strutting;

and yet, I am stunned

by the brooding branches

of the willow

and their resurrection

into a shining glory -

all green, plush and illumined.


Not to mention

how the sprawling lawn

nearly meets the curling lips of

these newly, bedecked branches.


Is hopeful the only way

to describe a swath of sunlight

iridescent on the sloping grass?

      eliander. You're absolutely right. Those words would apply, too. Maybe poems can change as moods or people change. Thank you ~

      I think peaceful would also suffice as a legitimate description. Love would also probably do quite well.

      beautiful :)
