Taking up the Challenge from Colin Lee, here is my completion of his Vernal Flutter. I invite you all to join in with the Casting Bricks September Challenge where we collaborate and enjoy each other’s work. There are nearly 2 weeks remaining in the September Challenge. (I will roll out the October Challenge on Friday, October 6th.) All are welcome!
I have kept Colin’s rhyme scheme and, hopefully, his voice in this. His words are in bold.
Awake my soul into a dream
A dream of robins’ poetry
Whereon tickly fluff of dandelions rhymes
And in silken crepuscular rays the verses stream
I hear a heartbeat
Dripping warm dewdrops of mead
Into the wind
Into her melodies of angelic sweet
Awake my soul to a poet’s scheme
A scheme of heron’s rhymes
Whereon snail’s spherical shells imagery curves
And in nocturnal dreams are lunar beams
I hear a wingbeat
Echoing soft reverberations of sweet wine
Into my core
Into her descants spring is complete.
