Beauty in Yellow Daffodils




















yellow  daffodils,  breaking  winter's  spell 
falling  in  love with  awakening spring 
in a mystic  garden , beauty does  dwell 
yellow  daffodils, breaking  winter's  spell 
offering  healing ,  inhale  the  sweet  smell
two  red  breasted robins  begin  to  sing
falling  in  love with  awakening  spring 
yellow  daffodils,  breaking winter' spell

  1. Truedessa, so glad you joined in....and I hope you feel better soon. Yes, the daffodils, when they appear, really remind me that winter is over. And I loved your reference to robins (our state bird). Their songs are music to my ears!

      Thanks..I have not seen a flower or robin as of yet, but the snow is almost gone so that is a good sign.

  5. Lovely, timely triolet--again U do not shy away from classic form as you bend it to your view. I am writing another episode of BLACKTHORNE for OLN, so maybe the Captain & Trudessa can set sail as well; that would be cool.

    1. Haha - I do like to use form sometimes especially when I am not feeling quite up to par..it sets the perimeters for me. Of course I broke the rules on this one I went with 10 syllables instead of 8. Hmm..that might be fun another Capt'n Pat & Truedessa sequel. I can't wait to read your new episode.

    There certainly is beauty in spring time melodies and colors. It is a stark difference from the cold months. Wonderful take Truedessa!

  24. One of my favorite poems is this one:

    poet William Wordsworth #10 on top 500 poets Poet's PagePoemsQuotesCommentsStatsE-BooksBiographyShare on FacebookShare on Twitter
    Poems by William Wordsworth : 77 / 385 « prev. poem next poem »
    Daffodils

    I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

    Continuous as the stars that shine
    And twinkle on the milky way,
    They stretched in never-ending line
    Along the margin of a bay:
    Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
    Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

    The waves beside them danced; but they
    Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
    A poet could not but be gay,
    In such a jocund company:
    I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
    What wealth the show to me had brought:

    For oft, when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood,
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.


    Are your surprised?

    3. Well, I'm a guy who writes about super blue balls so, yeah, I'd be surprised if you weren't.

    4. Ah that is true but, you are also the man who wrote these lines

      Do you feel blessed knowing there's a light?
      Do you hold on to treasures seen by those who dare to fight,
      Who know that there is more than meets the eye tonight?
