    The Bulrush and the stream


    Teased into a breeze leaning with nature’s wand, majestically stood the bulrush frond.

    Horse close by grazed grass to root, summer played with summer’s lute.

    New growth, golden field’s, patch-worked corn, silken-shaded waters filled with spawn.

    Under fine oak, escaping sun’s gaze, stream waters twinkled under musical rays.

    Greened-fence wood, only as lichen could, felt warm under hand – so good.

    Gentle cascade, wetness played, pebble and water a melody made, singing of the stream sang a serenade.

    Bulrush continued in breeze to lean, guard of gentleness to babbling stream.

    Wilderness cacophony to me a dream, fullness of life a variation on a theme.

    Still the bulrush mighty and strong protects waters journey, gentle and long, stands guarding the most beautiful song.

    Distant days of summer past would ever make a memory last, yearning to hear as before, melody of bulrush and stream once more.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
