SHADES OF SCARLET WHITE AND BLUE: A POEM

Updated on December 10, 2012

A soft reverie


Shades of scarlet white and blue

Tinged upon the face of the vast skies

Spanning the view for miles around

In all its regal beauty, open, it lies

Where He Himself has painted every stroke
With remarkable flourish, his own canvas
Smoothly coating the sprawling scenery
That the lands willingly cherish
The light breeze and the clear air
The blue misty mountains sparking the imagination
So many things Heavens promise
For those in need of consolation
The boughs and branches wave as if to welcome
The golden plans nature has in store
With eyes arrested and heart missing beats
Breathlessly, I adore
Be this some spectrum that shows what is to come?
Unspoken words and airy melodies whisper of a new kingdom
And then, I think of those radiant shades
As into twilight, the day gently fades
Red, blue and white of marvellous England
God save the queen and raise your land
Adieu fond message! Adieu sweet whisper!
The waiting is begun for your promised conqueror
