Conversation with a Primrose

Streams of thought imbibed until
they melt and swell in flowing rill:
dissolve to bends and pinion'd light
dispelling truth past wrong and right.

   A primrose is all blush and grin;
   O Loving Lady—let me in!
   Methinks you bloom for I alone
   and ours a bliss that starlights hone.

   I know you drink from that same spring
   from which our words grow wary, ring
   with cautious burning and groves raze,
   erect tall monuments, seethe haze
   but you speak naught yet to the soul
   give peace, repose—a brief parole
   from self-enacted prison terms
       "Why, for the wind, make yourself worms?"

       "You do not crawl but walk upright;
       your form's a bloom and not a blight.
       Your heart a bud which opes the more
       you languish on primordial shore.

       Compassion, feelful joy that brims
       on bound'ry where made flesh th' whims
       Imagination dreams 'fore dawn
       of lithesome mind, of breaking brawn
       all lapped on sands of foreign world
       so verdigris, to loam down-hurled.

       You need but drink from roots and sky
       to be as virtue-lush as I."

Falls of text I loose until
they melt and swell in ebbing rill:
dissolve to bends and pinion'd light
dispelling sound past wrong and right.

Thanks @fredkese, appreciate you checking it out!

Extraordinary poetry and images worthy of a great master. The rhyme is impeccable and the message of the speaker is overwhelming: "He who has ears to hear and he who has eyes to see".

This speaks to me:

I know you drink from that same spring
from which our words grow wary, ring
with cautious burning and groves raze,
erect tall monuments, seethe haze
but you speak naught yet to the soul
give peace, repose—a brief parole
from self-enacted prison terms
"Why, for the wind, make yourself worms?"

I embrace you infinitely, Daniel.

I liked the inclusion of a word like "verdigris". does it mean the same as in Spanish?

Its a very beautiful

You're back? The next thing I know your dad will start posting too. When you stopped making videos I thought you were gone from the web...

I will read the poems. Keep us up to date every week or two.^^


Haha. I suppose I am. I needed a long break. I didn't even open Discord for about 2 months.

I think it's about time to become active again. I'm happy to see you still around Chris! Hope everything is well.


Somehow, I missed this post. I'll hit a comment instead.

Dan, beautiful verse ... and beautiful pictures.
