NATURE POEMS

These are the last of my older poems that I am going to share:

Dawn Meditation

In these early moments

of the day before me spread,

as the life-giving sun burns its way

through the shrouds of night, silently rending them,

its brilliant warmth

speaks to my heart a poem of hope.

I awake with a singing soul,

victorious.

And though the song be lost

in the blatant discord

of everyday strife,

these moments now are mine

to walk in my Father’s house.

–KLM1963

Spring

Spring,like love,

is more cherished

with age.

Each year I greet the harbingers,

marvel at the blind courage

of Nature newly reborn,

delight in the incredibly sweet scent

of orange blossoms,

and each year

it is the more poignant

for having been known before.

A vitality

straining at Winter’s lethargy,

the tide of Spring

is the strongest force in nature,

but deceptively gentle,

like a woman in love.

–KLM1968?



Autumn

Azure paints the Autumn sky;

Crisp and cool, a sudden breeze

Whisks away bright, tattered garments

Outworn by the Summer day.

Like unclothed arms, each withered branch

Waves bony hands at Winter’s tease.

The torrid siren dressed in green,

Weary of sport, has gone her way

To sleep.

–KLM1954

    1. Thank you for your high praise! As for being an “expert,” I wouldn’t claim that. I have simply been writing poetry ever since I could write. In later years, this need was expressed in song lyrics, which I set to music and performed in my church.
