Cheeky Missy

...To the Downspout Overflow

(sonnet attempt #XLI) 


Ah, transient and vap'rous trickling rill, 
O'er pebbles gaily tripping, downward drawn; 
Sweet momentary bliss of spring snow wrought, 
Whose melting in the warming breezes fills
This little nat'ral channel made at will, 
For briefest space whilst day blooms; subtly gone
As waning afternoon congealed to nought
Thy lively, glimm'ring image by its chill.
Oh breathless ecstasy and twinkling bliss! 
A little burbling stream 'twixt sprouting grass; 
Retreat, for sweet reflections, from life's cares.
Created momentarily, how this
Delights the senses! And yet it shall pass
Ere eve, quite crystallized,...which now flows fair.

    A beautiful description of that very sight you see, admire and take a picture of. But this, this says more than a picture...
    Your poems are always nice to read and I hope you won't quit soon.

      Thank you very much!!! Ya, "a picture's worth a thousand words" they say, but this adds my perspective on it. Thanks for the encouragement to keep too!
