Priory Cottage Summer.

A group of three poems under the one title. 

               -1 –

To sit beneath the cherry

now, where silence stems from

every bough. Orbs of green

fair blush with red, bejewelled

gifts for autumn’s tread.

 

            – 2-

This gentle garden country

blessed, holds to her heart

a treasure chest.

Aflare with flower, perfumed

pressed a buxom beauty

summer dressed.

 

– Priory Cottage Harvest –

Fields have cast aside

their gold,

and bask unclothed

beneath the sun.

Love the first and last of these Sue, such rich images, delightful. my only real nit with the second poem was the line break on country, it threw me off, would you consider breaking after blessed instead, for me it would help but it could just be me, Very much enjoyed. Keith

Wonderful impressions of an experienced situation poetry, Sue. Sounds a really enjoyable place to live for awhile. I think this could be one poem of three stanzas too, and I’m not sure about the ‘wrap-around’ line style, it seems to be end rhyme trying to be internal rhyme, but doesn’t distract from the enjoyment of reading and the images it awakes. These little gems your forte. Nature as subject matter, its seasonal beauty, seems to suit your developed, concise voice so well, always a soothing read and appreciated.

Nice little vignettes
But I do believe the last three lines of the second poem deserve your attention and revision
