Classical Poetry

 

Writing prompt: Try writing some song lyrics

In the garden
There lies a rose
Whose petals blossom
When – nobody knows

In the forest
There stands a tree
Whose leaves unfurl
When no one can see

In the ocean
There swims a whale
Who breaches the surface
When? Just in a tale

You are my love and my life
But like the rose and the tree
You only reveal yourself
When tended carefully
Come into my arms, love
And there you will find
A nurturing world that
Will treat you in kind

Now in the garden
There blooms a rose
Whose petals blossom
Each time the wind blows

Now in the forest
The tree stands so tall
Its leaves reaching upwards
Its branches don’t fall

Now in the ocean
The whale swims so free
It breaches the surface
Wherever it might be

Come into my arms, love
And there you will find
A nurturing world that
Will treat you in kind
