April 26, 2017
Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. The theme for this week is trees in honor of Arbor Day, which falls on April 28.
Today’s poem is an Arbor Day poem about the beauty of trees.
I welcome comments on my poems at https://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
A tree is like a frozen dancer,
Redolent with grace,
Branches poised dramatically,
Open arms in place.
Revel in its patient passion,
A deep and quiet ecstasy
Yearning for the light.
