The Song of the Flower...



Song Of The Flower XXIII
I am a kind word uttered and repeated 
By the voice of Nature; 
I am a star fallen from the 
Blue tent upon the green carpet. 
I am the daughter of the elements 
With whom Winter conceived; 
To whom Spring gave birth; I was 
Reared in the lap of Summer and I 
Slept in the bed of Autumn. 


At dawn I unite with the breeze 
To announce the coming of light; 
At eventide I join the birds 
In bidding the light farewell.


The plains are decorated with 
My beautiful colors, and the air 
Is scented with my fragrance.


As I embrace Slumber the eyes of 
Night watch over me, and as I 
Awaken I stare at the sun, which is 
The only eye of the day.


I drink dew for wine, and hearken to 
The voices of the birds, and dance 
To the rhythmic swaying of the grass.


I am the lover's gift; I am the wedding wreath; 
I am the memory of a moment of happiness; 
I am the last gift of the living to the dead; 
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.


But I look up high to see only the light, 
And never look down to see my shadow. 
This is wisdom which man must learn.

Another week of holidays, I need it too, I spent most of last week with the cold, haha!! Sat inside playing games on the playstation, ha! But, I hope to get out and do things this week and maybe the weather will be better for me too. Sunday was lovely weather wise, but also tennis wise with our Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, so proud! Off out to Abbotsford today, Back to normal next Monday. This is my only post for the week, I shall visit you soon. Love to you all.

  2. Lovely photo shoot and beautiful poem. I am a bit perplexed about this Google Reader going away. Mine is still updating? I still see all the blogs I follow, many have updated within the last few minutes. Maybe it isn't going away? I have 't been really paying too much attention, but have been noticing people saying to follow on Bloglovin because Google Reader is going away. And GFC never went away either when they said it was. -Jess L

  15. I did some floral shots today too. Love your close ups. I'm a big tennis fan, and Novak is one of my favorites, but congrats to Andy for being the first Brit man to win Wimbledon in 7 decades!

  16. I hope it cools down when we get there. We are already suffering 40ºc in the shade. Don´t tell me that Scotland will be hot as well, ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
    We have been to Loch Lomond, ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
    I feel cool at the thought of it.
    Enjoy your precious time with your family, dear friend
