"In groves of cool shade"





In groves of cool shade

from trees that bear rich fruit

hanging heavy from the limbs

vines drape themselves

resembling drooping curtains

which

when closed

choke out the sun

Cool brooks run in labyrinth pattern

criss-crossed on the forest floor

they run deliciously cool

the water sweet and clear

the wind whispers softly in the leaves

and the laden branches

drop their fruit

and they sigh in relief

the wind


c1968 Carol Kerr Buckles
