Practice piece. . . . .

kf

It was the Rainbow gave thee birth,
And left thee all her lovely hues;
And, as her mother’s name was Tears,
So runs it in my blood to choose
For haunts the lonely pools, and keep
In company with trees that weep.
Go you and, with such glorious hues,
Live with proud peacocks in green parks;
On lawns as smooth as shining glass,
Let every feather show its marks;
Get thee on boughs and clap thy wings
Before the windows of proud kings.
Nay, lovely Bird, thou art not vain;
Thou hast no proud, ambitious mind;
I also love a quiet place
That’s green, away from all mankind;
A lonely pool, and let a tree
Sigh with her bosom over me.

      1. Following islandtimes comment. I think if you go into the sites you are following there is a settings button you can choose under the follow icon to choose “send me an email”?

  2. Oh! Lovely Kingfisher! I think maybe you need to do something in your WordPress “dashboard”, maybe in the sharing department, in order for followers to receive your beautiful blog posts in their e-mail inboxes….not sure exactly….but otherwise people have to look for you in their WP “reader”; which is fine by me, but it is fun to not miss a post by having them come to one’s mailbox. Cheerio!

  3. Beautiful poem. But I really like the kingfisher watercolour. I pored over it trying to imbue myself with its magic.
