What will happen
When all the
Rustic places
Are gone?

the_tempest_400The forest glens;
Gorges and gullies,
Rugged ravines
And singing wrens;
The clefts and canyons
Covered with poplars
And pines;
Their scent
Carried to
Heaven on
A gentle
Breeze.

Foxes
And hounds
Darting under
Luminous green
Leaves light
Falling in pools
Like ballerinas
Dancing on the grass;
Among singing
Warblers and aromas
Wafting to the blue sky
From a carpet
Of flowers swaying
Among juniper
And thyme.

The children
Singing, dancing
In a circle under
The trees with
Daisy chains
Resting on
Their heads.

What will happen
When all the
Rustic places
Are gone?

Where will
The Forrest
Nymphs and fairies live?
Where will the Satyrs
And woodland
Spirits dwell?

Bucolic days
Floating away
Pining for the sea,
The salt and the
Coconut summer air.

What will happen
When all the
Rustic places
Are gone?
