Poetry To A Rose: The Rainy Day, by Deborah Berry



The day dawned gray, wet from the night's black rain

My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye

Complete Poem


Kew Gardens, by Julian Duffus



This a mystery of Moon
Where silver shadows cast by cactus burr
The shallow fish flash steam
Reflect the jungle ambience of place
Out side the lawn guarded by the Queen's Beasts

THERE ance was a may, and she lo'ed na men;
She biggit her bonnie bow'r doun in yon glen;

Evensong, by Ridgely Torrence



Beauty calls and gives no warning,
Shadows rise and wander on the day.
In the twilight, in the quiet evening,
We shall rise and smile and go away.
