Poetry from within


Eyes to the sky and what do we see

Another day is well under way

Look to the sky and what do we see

A blanket of Blue spread before us

From here to infinity

With clouds below and above

Like a scarf gently wrapped around

Perfectly placed for the Artist

As his preliminaryt background

A cottage there in the distance

Nearly obscured from view

Overlooking the gently flowing water

Perfect reflections of the sky so Blue

On the banks surrounding this idyllic scene

The signs that Autumn is near

Trees ,shrubs and bushes changing colours

From Green to Bronze and Gold as they do each year

Yet slowly the river meanders

Until it reaches the weir

Then rushes forward in torrents

Below the ancient bridge which is near

A last glance at the grass now

Like a carpet of green

Time now for the Artist

To leave this Autumn Scene.
