National Poetry Writing Month is nearly at an end. To celebrate it, try your hand at some verse.

I share my first name with Dickinson so I was intrigued by this inspiration. I haven’t written poetry on demand since high school. Here’s what I came up with.

Songs of Earth

I sit upon a hill of stone
and listen to the World’s intone.
Hearing the myriad songs of Earth
an endless cycle of Death and Rebirth.
The wild whistle of the breeze
blowing freely through the trees,
the ocean rhythmically crashing on the sand,
rippling rivers running over the land.
The many different birds singing,
and numerous insects buzzing,
the creatures of land, air, and sea
all join in the Harmony.
The sundry forces of Nature
combine to form the overture,
a multitude of voices in a medley
forming a recurring Symphony.
