Her Grace And The Orb

by Ben Pickard   Oct 10, 2016


All through the woods and twixt the brooks,
The Mist took up her stay.
In foxes' dens and badgers' sets,
Her Grace came out to play.
She cast a sheet 'pon bough and leaf -
She left a diamond veil;
And though the Golden Orb shone down,
Her Grace would yet prevail.
The wind would move her 'bout the fields,
And grains of corn would cling;
But with the breeze, she danced and swayed,
And made the blackbirds sing.

About midday the Sun would stay,
And harmony was found:
Her Grace relaxed her silver grasp
And let the Orb beat down.

    Clearly deserves a win. This write is delivering great flow of imagination in the readers' minds. The description of the sun and its act is truly unique. I like the last four lines mainly as it is giving the great relaxation to the nature. One more time you have done quite brilliant job. I wonder what makes you create such beautiful and pleasing to the eye write. Congratulation, Sir.
