Dandelion clocks dancing on breezes

cuckoo spit, pollen, tickles, and sneezes


In the shallows, the petals of fallen

wild flowers


Cast shadows and tease

those sucked in by warm thermals


Yes there in the dapple where the current

bites deepest


Where once there was laughter

and of course, happy ever afters …


Spied only by sprites and by nymphs and by



That’s where he knows

he shall lay with thee some come-a-day …

    That day will come but hopefully not yet as there is so much life to live but you will always know that person will be there for you - as I do.

      a poem with a wealth of imagery. If a painter were to paint your scripted words, it would be a painting to behold.
      An Excellent Piece.

      All the best

              A heart tugger for sure this poignant use of a walk through nature which leads to hope of reviving lost love - a knowing beats hope and your words leave this reader fervently wishing that come-a-day appears really soon.............x

                    Finding the ideal resting spot among the flora and fauna and to share it with ones true love, makes for more "happy-ever-aftering," unless it's your final resting place. Your descriptions paint an idyllic image of a spot deep into the wood, "spied only by sprites and nymphs" that seems to be chosen by the narrator as place for a secret tryst or a burial site. This poem is filled with imaginative and colorful language, "dandelion clocks, cuckoo spit, current bites deepest," etc. All following the unique title "Come-a- day." which leads me to the more drastic of the choices. Seems a remote and light-traffic area for either, but I'm leaning toward the final ending. - Phil A.

                    • Neville

                      The point you make in your very first sentence is incontestable Phil .. who in their write mind could possibly dispute that ... and your keen eye picked out the clandestine tryst like nature of my proposed meeting ... Oh' n I guess if the truth were out .. a lotta folk quite fancy the idea of being watched .. I certainly prefer being spied on by dragonflies to someone armed with an IPhone and access to the cloud ... but hey, I'm givin too much away here .. it must be the raised temperature & seasonal flu ..

                      Anyway, I'm just going to say thanks again MF27 sir and then hop back into my pit in the hope of catching some of them horizontal N'zzzz ..

                      Thanks again Phil A,
