Rowan Tree

Poem By Patricia Gale

Beneath the green and berry red
They flutter about
Making a melody with each wing strum
Magical lil’ creatures

Beauties of the forest
Fairies they are called by some
Protecting and guarding against the darkness
Bringing well being to babe’s milk

Sweet Rowan tree
Grace my land and grow
Ward off evil spirits
And remind me of my heritage of long ago

Dance with me in moonlight May
And I shall honor you
With my nurturing hands
And the remembrance of the one who holds my smile

Comments about Rowan Tree

Lovely fairy piece of writing. Beautiful tree.
This brought me to my childhood, I danced with fairies in my back yard then. Thank you for this.
I like the way you use fairies and other creatures (insects) in some of your nature poems. It brings the reader back to a childhood innocence, all the better to appreciate what you are saying in the poem. In this one a feeling of comfort and protection (and love) , as would a child of the forest, for her creator. A deep and talented piece.
This is such a pretty poem to read. I love stories and poems that are about nature and have the feeling of enchantment.
I was attracted to this title and especially like the second half of this poem, as it addresses the tree directly in a fine poetic way.

With pen in hand my mind begins to wonder

Then your name appears

Oh to be a butterfly and flutter my wings by your check
To have you admire me as I glide by your beautiful smile
To land upon your shoulder and watch you breathe
Oh to hear your voice sweetly recite

A Chance

His words glide like silk against soften skin
I am captivated by the thought wondering should I give in
Could this be a chance by the angels
Hearing a prayer for a heart that has always dangled

All I Want For Christmas (A Bit Naughty)

All I want for Christmas is to treat you as my wonderland
My finger tips to skate lightly across your chest
Hearing the music of a softly fine tuned band
I need you to be my holiday quest
