Michael Edwards






Once undisposed to gather lilies

which grow in unattended lands

but now with eagerness to pluck

and place them in her tender hands.

    I've gotta tell ya Mr. E ...that is quite beautiful.

    • Michael Edwards

      That's most generous of you and thanks for saving it - I'm honoured.

    • Goldfinch60

      Very good write, I do hope she appreciated the flowers.

      • Michael Edwards

        Lilly certainly did - thanks Andy.

        Lovely watercolor castle. Nice poem about the lilies--love lilies so much! Great combo!

      • orchidee

        Good write and pic again Michael. She got those lilies now?!

        • Michael Edwards

          Yes he plucked them - he's a very good plucker...!

        • Fay Slimm

          To paint one of these pieces would be a success but to produce two different moods - - - loud applause for your watercolour offerings and of course that romantic verse too Michael.

          Seek Michael and you will find ~ TRUE LOVE ! Loving the Stately Home ~ Reminds me of CHATSWORTH which I have often visited in All Seasons.
          Love your Love Poem ~ short but very sweet ! Today mine in longer (four Quintains !) but the sentiment is the same 1 Yours as ever ~ BRIAN

          Have to say Michael, I liked the last painting better.
          As for the poem. Yes, love changes us, something we would not do in the past, we now do willingly.

          • Michael Edwards

            Yes it was the precious one I chose for the exhibition - thanks Fred.

          • WL Schuett

            Another fine painting , I like your little poem Lillies for Lilly

            • Michael Edwards

              Think I like your title better Bill - thanks for the comment.

            • Louis Gibbs

              The latest version of the art has become dark and foreboding. While the short poem is quite tender and warm. Is there a Jeckle and Hyde lurking in you today, Michael? Good write!

              • Michael Edwards

                Sort of sweet and sour - thanks for looking in Louis.

              • Accidental Poet

                I can only wish I had your artistic talent Michael.

                • Michael Edwards

                  This last version of your painting and the poem is my favorite!

                      • myself and me

                        The feeling of the two paintings are so dramatic. This one feel a bit melancholy, but the poem is so beautiful.
