Poems Of Nature

Hey, everyone! As you know, March 21st is World Poetry Day. I’ve decided to write a poem and add a poem from last year and this year to celebrate. Here are some related blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/10/17/lillians-triple-poems/http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/13/easter-poems/,  http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/12/what-am-i-poems/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/21/fun-poem-extravaganza/. I hope you enjoy!

Here’s the first poem I wrote March 21st, 2018:

A flower blooms in
the midst of winter
knowingly lasting

Forever running in
a sea of white
as the sun shines.

As its golden petals laid its petals
softly to its soft comfy bed as
it rests in winter.

Here’s the second poem that I wrote in March 21st, 2017:

Birds dance in the breeze like ballet dancers
Flowers flow from trees like a waterfall
Trees dance in the sea of grass

Here’s the third poem that I wrote today:

Flowers shine bright

through the gloomy winter

Into the glorious spring weather.

Flowers flow like a sparkling river

Through the snow and rain

As a welcoming robin ready to mate.

Flowers dance gracefully in the windy day

Of gloom and sunshine

Flowers thankfully drink water

from it’s thirsty roots.

Here’s the fourth poem that I wrote today:

Butterflies are dancing

In the ocean blue sky

Like a hummingbird floating

In an ocean

Of flowers dancing to water

And wind.

Here’s the final poem also from March 21st, 2018:

Water is a land
of freedom

Freedom is a gift
of emotion and pride.

While pride is a sea
full of joy.

Emotion is an ocean
full of joy and happiness
with anger and sad falling behind it

As water waves
like a sea of freedom
knowing its beauty awaits.

That’s the end of Poems Of Nature. I hope you enjoyed!

A Friendly Letter To Robert Frost

Hi there! I am typing a friendly letter to Robert Frost who has past away. I’m doing this for fun. Below is where it begins.

Hey there, Robert Frost!

I had no idea that you live in New Hampshire. I loved your winter poems and some of the other poems you wrote. I hope you love New Hampshire! I’ve heard it’s beautiful there!

I like poetry and I know you like reading because you are technically an author. Take your time to read this. Enjoy a nice day!

Best wishes,

Lillian

P.S. My family says hello.

Thanks for reading this friendly letter!
