“The vernal realm” #poem #poetry #verse #writing

The vernal realm 
Is ever graced 
By the unique stoicism 
Of grief disconsolate 
That bestows upon the countenance 
Of the sorrowing land 
A serenity lachrymose 
Which pervades among the stillness of winter 

While for a time 
Bereft does the winterland remain 
As a sorrow most grievous 
Existence entire afflicts 
While the land slumbers deep
As the shadow of death 
Across the face of the earth does silently glide
Its spoils for to gather 
Its prey for to reap
Until its task most grim is done 
During the days of woe
In a land of lament and grieving 
Where the mourning endlessly bow and sway 
Like the skeletal trees a myriad
Whose denuded branches
Starkly etched against a pale firmament 
Struggle much in the unyielding cold relentless 
~ d.a.simpson ~

  1. Beautiful. I see how Winter and the bareness of it, look woeful. It seems that sorrow touches you and that the darkness of Winter grows. Through the way you talk about the trees, just shows you feel like them without their leaves.

  2. Thank you so very much for your kind words. I am greatly heartened by your interpretation of this nature poem. I find that nature and the contemplating of if has much to offer us personally or on a wider scale
    I’m delighted that this poem resonated with you
    I love the winter and its austere character as the world lies dormant while it rests and replenishes itself before the glorious rebirth in spring which we see all about us now
    Very many blessings always
