The Poet Of The Roe

a gentle poet...

rural scenes
all beautiful to a musing mind
he captured for our pleasure
and delight

the valley and its yield he saw
with a poet's eye
as accurate as a migrant
swallow's flight

the subtleties of his vision
he conveyed
while experiencing seasonal
changes by the roe...

for this poet loved nature
in his inmost heart
a non-ebbing love
a constant flow

he loved the woods the lanes
the streams
he loved the song fair nature sung
the mayfly settling on the roe
forever kept his warm heart young

alas young nature spring by name
witnessed this gentle poet's demise
and as the vale embraced
a cuckoo's call brought a smile
to tearful eyes
