A LOST PARADISE ( A Fairies Tear )

Between the flowers, Surrounded by trees,
Perched upon a rock overlooking the meadow,
Her wings sparkling in the sunshine,
Long silken hair moves with the breeze,
Skin as soft and white as a full moon,
Eyes bluer than the sky above,
A twinkle that could make stars jealous,
She watches birds, butterflies and dragon flies,
Perform their Ariel ballet in colors so radiant,
Once this was her land,  Safe to travel wherever she please,
Now only for a short visit is all she is allowed,
There is danger beyond the meadow,
In the distance are houses, And beyond,
Well it makes her shudder just to think about it,
Packs of boys wander in the meadow,
They bring their dogs, They destroy the beauty,
They bring danger to all life in the meadow,
They know no other way, Its a hard world now,
It's their world now, All she can do is watch,
She wipes the tears away, It's time for her to return home,
She stands on her rock, One last look,
One last look at the sign behind her,
She flies upward and in a blink of the eye, She is gone.
The sign Say's it all, COMING SOON
Brand new mall to be built on this site..........

Outstanding! Reminds me of William Wordsworth and Lord Byron. What more can I say?

I am wing-sighing ... this poem is Wonderfully expressed. You have captured the simplistic life of Nature moving and experiencing and always, there is the dinosaur or meteor coming 'round the bend,... I like your boys with dogs coming into the poem. Mostly, I like your Phoenix...seeing how scarce the stories are of re-building ... like Atlantis, where the empires of human were only surpassed by their egos to control, and did enslave their populous with psychic abilities until it all sunk beneath the sea. Fresh slate, let's start over please. I Really Appreciate your attention to our beautiful Host Earth and the clock is ticking... the Mayan Countdown is coming... the cement and plastic are smothering the ground, and our earth can't breathe and the ring of fire will be turned on high and the lands will split open small fissures like the black holes in space vein tapping into the toxic and taking it right into the center where it Is the hottest, and spit it back out in lava flames, new land... I am watching how your Phoenix magic does rebuild and I also, am wanting a better planet.

Such heavy burdens to bare on frail wings...this poem has both beauty and substance! Lovely work.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
