Earth's Song


Whilst searching for myself at dawn
I was thrice blessed this very morn
For I found a flower I thought had gone
there amongst the weeds it shone
Its white petals will soon be gone
I promise you I will take more care
so that when I look next summer
you will still be there ...

I listened to the songs of birds
and thought about my wasted words
Magpies warbling just past the dawn
a lovely way to greet the morn
A fledgling chick calls for its Mum
both reunited in the morning sun ...

Walking barefoot on sweetest grass
water bubbling in my path
Running in between my toes
thoughts of childhood
Forget my woes
Winding my way through leafy bowers
such a lovely way to spend the hours
Finding new shoots along the way
welcomed blessings is all I can say ...

And now has come a balmy breeze
it moves with music through the trees
The leaves are dancing to a rustling tune
and in the sky I see the moon
Birds are singing their evening song
frogs and crickets in unison
All around a pulsing sound
I feel the coolness of the ground ...

The air is filled with the scent of flowers
How I love these dusky hours
All this set against a sky of blue
ever deepening in every hue
Once again thoughts of you ...

And in the distance an owl's call
still many sounds at night fall
Listen quietly to the chorus of all
For it is the Earth's song after all.

Thank you so much Fiona dear, for your sweet comment. I am so pleased that you enjoyed my poem and that it made you smile.
I decided to re-post this poem as some of my new followers such as yourself have not read some of my earlier works, there are a few little 'gems'sprinkled amongst earlier poems and I am going to bring them into the light of the future.
Thank you I have had a relaxing weekend; I hope you're enjoying your weekend too. :-)

Olga said...

Wonderful! I can read and reread your poetry many times.

Birds are singing their evening song
frogs and crickets in unison
All around a pulsing sound
I feel the coolness of the ground ...

Lady*♥*Fiona said...

You are welcome, dear Dianne :) I've been thinking of doing the same thing with some of my older posts. It's a slow process in building a larger following and during this time some earlier *gems* do not get the attention they deserve ;)

Are you multi-lingual, Dianne? If so, are there no end to your talents? :D

Love to you, always :) x0x

dianne said...

liebe Jasmin , ich danke Ihnen für Ihre nachdenkliche Worte, ich hoffe, Sie genießen mein Gedicht, ich weiß nicht, wie gut es wäre zu übersetzen.
Ich bin sicher, die Kerzen in den Fenstern schauen schön, ich denke, es wäre jetzt schneit, wo Sie leben? So schön, einen weißen Winter.
Liebe und Grüße, Dianne

dianne said...

Thank you Olga dear friend, that is such a lovely thing to say, it makes me happy when my poems are enjoyed.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thanks Fiona dear friend, it is a good idea to re-post some of our earlier poems, many of mine have not been seen in recent years.
They are worth 'dusting off' and being given a second chance. :-)

No, I am not multi-lingual, I do understand some phrases and words in other langauges but I would be lost without the Google Translator and even then some of the context of the conversation is lost in translation.
I write poetry, sketch, paint, sew, embroider, knit, crochet and play the piano badly, to name just a few things! Lol. :-)

Love to you too! xoxoxo ♡

Prime Aque said...

Yet again, turning the written word into a sense of reality. A watercolour painting that hops off the page and comes alive. Another beautiful read Dianne. Some hidden gems out there in the archives :) x

Thank you Prime Aque for your very thoughtful comment,I am happy that my writing and this blog pleases you.

dianne said...

Thank you dear Paul for your very sweet comment. I do try to paint a picture with my words, some are watercolours others are impressionist paintings, as I want my readers to feel the many emotions that I evoke with my words and from their own experiences.

Tu que tienes espíritu de poeta
en tus fantasias viste un paisaje lunar y tu mente comenzo a divagar.
Un fuerte a brazo

J Cosmo Newbery said...

Should I be playing Mahler...?

Leovi said...

Majestuosa y altiva
apareces ante mí,
blandiendo tus faldas al viento
y no puedo resistirme ante tí.

Un solo gesto, una mirada,
una simple señal de tu mano
son suficientes para levantarme
e ir tras tus pasos,
ansioso por atrapar el polén
que el viento te roba.

Magia da Inês said...

º°♥❤ Olá, amiga!
❤ Li sua poesia.
Fechei os olhos e fiquei imaginando esse jardim, as cores, os sons, a textura da terra sob os pés descalços...
º°❤ Boa semana!
❤Beijinhos.
º°❤Brasil

dianne said...

Thank you dear /t. , I will keep your request in mind for some summer garden pics and try not to disappoint you.
It looks sad at the moment, I just have not got the time or the energy to keep it looking beautiful.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Yes dear J Cosmo , thank you it would be lovely if you played Mahler's 'Song of the Earth', but I think this music would best convey my feelings about this poem at present.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear friend Leovi , these words are so beautiful, are they from a poem of yours? I wish I could write with such beauty.

Majestic and proud
you appear before me,
brandishing your skirts in the wind
and I can not stand before you.

A single gesture, a glance,
a simple sign of your hand
are enough to get up
and go after your steps,
eager to catch the pollen
that the wind steals.

Muchas gracias mi amigo!
Besos
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Olá querida amiga Inês, obrigado, estou contente que você fechou os olhos e imaginar os sentimentos de meu poema. É um relato verdadeiro de um dia de volta em 2009, é lindo sentir a frescura da relva e da água em seus dedos, esquecer as suas preocupações. Um dia de lembranças encantadoras.
abraços e beijos

This is beautiful Dianne! I love poems about the earth.

foam said...

you earth song is absolutely beautiful, dear dianne. it makes me long to be right there on your spot of the earth .. :)

dianne said...

Thank you Laura dear, for your lovely comment, I am happy that you enjoyed my poem.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy for your very kind words.
I hope you are well, I'm sorry I missed your last post?
I hope it is not too cold for you now that Winter is here?
The weather here has been very strange, we did have some really hot unbearable days, then many days of heavy rain. Saturday was lovely, sunshine but not too hot and then yesterday, Sunday it rained again, a thunder storm, high winds and the temperature dropped so much I put the heater on last night because I was cold. Today is cool and cloudy, not like Summer at all...but I won't complain as I don't like the hot 30ºC plus days and the humidity.
Take care.
xoxoxo ♡

Leovi said...

The poem is mine. A year ago I started a blog of poems but only made ​​5 entries. I keep it a secret because I feel shame, I'm not a poet. Besos.

dianne said...

Leovi dear friend, this poem you have written is so beautiful. Please do not feel shame, someone who can write with such beauty and feelings is definitely a poet.
Thank you for posting it here, I feel honoured.

Leovi said...

Imagination is necessary in search of self and cro is something that continues throughout life. Besos.

Hello Pugsley my dear, so lovely to have you visit. I don't have sprinkler heads, on hot days I like to water the grass with the hose and love to feel the cool water between my toes and under my feet. :)
