This Day Will Not Come Again....

Don’t buy me diamonds, though I’m partial to pearls!
Don’t feed me caviar, I’d rather have---squirrels---

[well, maybe not quite, but I'm being creative...]

Don’t send me orchids or lilies or roses.
If you love me just take me where wild flowers growses.


Walk with me ‘neath trees of fantastical shapeses,


And wander in fields on erratical traipses.



For music we’ll tune in to buzzing of beeses
And soft moaning whispers of breezes in treeses……



Okay, so I'll never be Poet Laureate, but I seized the day! Yesterday's gone; tomorrow's a closed book, but today I was happy, here, now, on a morning walk, with flowers and trees, chirping birds, sunshine, buzzing bees, and a boy, jogging in the green stillness who loves all these…..

This is so beautiful! I'd love to be able to walk in a place that looks that way! Only thing is I'd be walking all the time and never do anything else. :)

Excellent Molly! Great pics and you should definitely think about a career in poetry LOL! What a lovely place for a stroll!

Rhyming whimsy, a nice blog post for me to read in my otherwise cranky frame of mind. Thanks Molly!

I agree - lovely piece of writing which also cheered me up (and I need it (depressed son-in-law)).

Those aerial rootsies
Are just so cutsie!

I'll take a squirrel over caviar any day!

Thanks for the fun post -

It must indeed have been a fantastic day that inspired you to wax lyrical. Good on you. By the way, fennel is also edible and rhymes with pearl.

Molly said...

Aghhh.....Wouldn't that be a bit of a stretch LGS? I can certainly understand your desire to steer me away from squirrels, but I absolutely detest the taste of fennel---not that I've ever tasted squirrel!!

This place is part of the state forest/state park system, and is really beautiful---the more so because it is never crowded. Possibly because it's a bit of a drive to get to---but so worth it!

Wow, lovely. Just lovely!

Re the sock wool, it's self patterning. You just knit around and around and around, et voila! Very clever.

Dr. Seuss ...LOOK OUT!!!

It pleases the birds and the beeses in treeses
That Molly is playing in the fieldses so greenses
Would that meeses could fly through the breezes
And skip with the beeses and Molly
NO GEEZERS

Your pictures are lovely, and your poem is whimsical. I especially like the first wildflower picture.

I was so happy until Blogger ate my comment.

Such delightful happy poetry and lovely scenery to be a part of. I have no doubt that you added to the beauty of the place as you did to my day.
