The honeysuckle's
Wild blossoms spring
Amid the wide-ribbed
Leaves of meadow grass,
Wind swayed and sighing,
Rising from the
Dark, sweet nitrous loam.

A sparrow's startled flight
Spans earth and sky,
Touching in turn
A honey-rich bright bee
Among the blooms,
Fragrant pine-tops
And snow-brilliant peaks.

The sparrow's silver call
Floats on a high cloud
And abruptly drops
As through a deep pool;
Ripples of silence spread,
Unbroken by the
Sun-fed valley's drone.

Today's poem is thanks to Poems by Kevin Langdon

The poem is usually posted between 10pm the previous night and 9 am on the day of the poem. It could be your own or someone else's. It should be something to do with nature, and ideally it should have something to do with the particular day.
