Happy June 1st!! I can’t believe we’ve nearly reached the halfway point of 2010!! June is a huge month for me for various reasons, and I’m SO excited! …I think I’m done with the exclamation marks now. Today’s poem is, again, from a Honors World Lit assignment, but I like it the best so far. It was supposed to be about nature and express personal feelings and I think it does so. Enjoy!
I wake in the morning
To the sun on my face
As it streams through the window
And paints rainbows on the walls
Then the robin sings his greeting
Trilling his “Good morning”
And his choir joins in
And they fill the air with melody
I take a step outside
Bathed in light and warmth
I enjoy the earth beneath my bare feet
I revel in the wind in my hair
Down the dirt path is my favorite place
The sandy beach that edges
A lake as calm and clear as glass
With majestic mountains behind it
Here I can sit until the sun goes down
Listening to nature’s music
As the lapping waves keep time
And the insects enjoy a dance
Then the sunset fills the sky
With vibrant colors that paint
A watercolor on the clouds
That I do not dare frame
Then I must return
So the moon guides me back
As the stars blink a sleepy
