    Edgwarebury Park

    Come, take a sip of a scent

    In the roses garden, beneath the little ramblers

    Let’s sit, it’s free and empty

    Best of all, it ain’t anyone’s

    Inhale               inhale           inhale

    Let its sweetness unbind your mind

     

    In colours they’re talking

    Showing off its blossoms

    While some dance onto the ground,

    Running out of their time

    No sound, no sorrow

     

    You see some spots on the leaves?

    Soon it’ll be spreading fast

    Take them off! Say you

    (Do you reckon they’re taking them off?)

    Nonetheless escalating

    Rotting

    Diminishing

     

    Summer, autumn, winter, spring, summer

    You’ll just have to wait

    If they come back for another year

     

    Leave not anything you wish you had

    Neither the unspoken nor the seen ones

    And have another sip,

    And another one

    I n h a l e      i n h a l e       i n h a l e

    Ain’t healing any yet lingering

    Enough to carry you through

    thank you for your flattering rating. I'm still a learner. It was inspired by the local park near where I live that I didn't come to appreciate until recently.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
