Poetry and Blog Awards

Hey everyone!

I found this poem today and I wanted to share it with you all, after walking through the park yesterday I was inspired by all of the green leaves, bumblebees and flowers. I can't believe that the whole place was covered in very thick snow just a few months ago. Time goes by so fast now, and I never thought I'd say that. My friend told me that university will go by, being the 3 quickest years of my life, and while that seems silly that it would go so fast now, it probably will do.

So here's the poem, and some photos from a walk through Ashridge with my Mum a few years ago.

As I ventured to the wood,
I stopped to draw on dewy air; let
Droplets shimmer in my hair, that
Rested on my tranquil head – as
In a sense of cosy bed.

As I ventured to the wood,
A gesturing cuckoo perched above,
And then in song with cooing dove,
‘You're welcome’, bade he, ’Enter please
To roam our land with gentle breeze.’

As I ventured to the wood,
A fallow deer of limpid eye
Gave care to glance at lucky I.
The heavenly aura 'bout her glow had
Charmed me, like a fine Bordeaux.

As I ventured to the wood,
A dazzling flower waved her face
In blazing show of dance and chase, and
Reddened bright in shade of dawn, she
Flirted like a prancing fawn.

As I ventured to the wood,
A butterfly had graced my arm,
And knowing I bid him no harm, he
Splayed for me hypnotic wing in
Colours for to urge me sing!

As I ventured to the wood,
The radiant sun shone down on me.
He flushed and beamed ‘I say to thee,
You bless your land; be filled with pride, and
Cherish e’er yon countryside!
