contentment is green



Earth’s new spring green

sings a theme serene

for ears and eyes keen

to creation’s pastoral scene.


On hills’ grassy sheen

fresh rain-washed clean

sheep shearer has seen

fluff-puff wool to glean.


A poets’ paradise pristine,

if you know what i mean.



For dVerse Poets “green” quadrille challenge and with my apologies to Luci Shaw 🙂

    I do know what you mean. And I love the way you were able to rhyme the entire poem.
