World Poetry Day: How could I go without posting a few lines from one of my own poems? Yesterday being the first day of spring I have chosen something romantic..everyone loves a fool in love. Inspired by a very special guy albeit a cad!
The Stranger’s Garden
Last Summer a butterfly drifted into the stranger’s garden. Enticed by his flowers and well kept lawn. She was caught unawares in his net.
She’s happy it is a sunny place to be. There are new things to see every day. She wants to stay – she likes it there.
In the house, and from a safe distance, He watches her beauty. Still uncertain of her colours.
He believes he has captured her. Her flutter-like moods amuse and intrigue him.He’s gentle so as not to damage her delicate wings.
