In verdant prairies
where boughs of calloused
cast green shadows
around me,
gale wind wafted through
leaves in such jocund

With breath fawning
on my ears,
the vibrant breeze
murmured your name-
...softly, tenderly,
and soothingly...

O! How horrid Refrain
shrieked within,
like a tire raged by
the orb of heaven;
where oft I slipped
into the gap
'twixt rapture and despair.

Yet lying on green
I listened in placid glee
with pensive thoughts
toward nature's
unspoken melody.


silence ensued...

    Nicely done. I liked the ending, and the flow was flawless. You're a gorgeous writer.

    I just wanted to say how you seem to use old English in your writing; it's a beautiful thing and you use it so well. Congradulations on that.

    And I love your writings. They're amazing; they leave me where I can't say anything in my comment, and you have no idea how rare that is.
