Collecting Birds

29 Mar
 
Do you ne’er think what wondrous beings these?
Do you ne’er think who made them, and who taught
The dialect they speak, where melodies
Alone are the interpreters of thought?
Whose household words are songs in many keys,
Sweeter than instrument of man e’er caught!

A to Z Archive: L: Lyrical Lake

22 Mar

On this Lazy morn,

Out during Low Light,

Looked through the Lavish Leaves,

Rested against the Lazy Ledge, 

Waited for the Lifting fog,

and dreamed into the Lyrical Lake.

Attempting to include some poetry every now and then. Elementary at the start, but hopefully… eventually… I will be able to express what I’m really trying to say!

Happy Spring!

Going through my photos I found this poem from my glorious college days.  My bestfriend and roommate left this momento on the refrigerator with poem-a-day magnets. I should find a set of these and start all over!  I, of course, illustrated it myself using the all too wonderful Paint feature on Microsoft…

Here’s to Spring!

BirdSong

this is exactly what I thought when I saw a group birds on a wire! Glad to see someone out there has musical talent to create this video!

inspirational…

A musician has proven he is quite the songbird by creating a composition inspired by a feathered flock perching on some telephone wires.

Jarbas Agnelli from Brazil, 46, spotted a picture of the birds in a newspaper and noticed they were arranged like notes on a musical score.

Faithful Forever

A poem of F:  

Formidable fortress

Formerly fabricated

Fixed foundation

Firm frame

Flawless faltering

Functional freedom

Faded facade

Fostering familiarity

Fervent fidelity

Forever

There is so much behind the words that I have written here.  F proved to be the perfect letter for a poem about the structure built by hand long ago and withstanding time and all other elements. I don’t know if it would ruin the poem to explain each line… I think that it might.  But if you truly reflect on each description you’ll see what is meant and hopefully agree that F- words, aren’t always bad words.
