This Day New
Bright from the west long shadows stretch
across the meadows of lush emerald dew.
Peace and tranquillity drawn, nay etched
on my thoughts and my soul on this day new.
Bud's awake, green hearts burst and covet the light;
And the cherry gaily flaunt its blossom's hue.
Renewed hope paints in pastel colours bright
across my mind and thru my heart on this day new.
Silver birch where songbird perch, bathe in early sun.
From outstretched limbs a thrush sing its sweet review.
Morn's mood as clay to a sculptor does succumb,
and is moulded most affable on this day new.
Crested green, far woodland scene reaches for the sky;
Earth's emerald crown; heaven's gown in sapphire blue.
My blissful state, the gem that thrills the jeweller's eye.
A diamond gift, a moment's lift on this day new
Dandelions and buttercups; meadows golden smiles.
Bays of green where swathes of sunny yellows are strew.
Alive with possibility a new verse compiles
on nature's splendid poetic slate on this day new.
So I rise in the sun's rejuvenating rays.
Ready to illuminate, resolute my best to do.
To carry nature's fine art, her unspoken phrase;
And through my deeds exemplify on this day new.
