The wish May 31, 2010

Filed under: poetry — laurenmichelleotheim @ 5:21 pm

I wish upon a marigold

for adventures to unfold

and strength enough  to make me bold

as I go traipsing round the world

and obstacles my way are hurled

by wind that past my head has swirled

as if it must fight against the dawn

and create a night through a yawn

until I fight the darkness gone

I wish upon a blade of grass

for a dream that’s made of glass

and tells the darkness it will pass

and I awake with stary eyes

as I have shed my self of sighs

beneath the deep expansive skies

and I will stretch my arms and laugh

at clouds above shaped like giraffe

until I spy and wander down a path

I wish upon an apple tree

with star-shaped golden seeds

and bright green leaves

for weather that is light and fair

and a lover that will meet me there

beneath the dappled light we’ll make a pair

and we’ll hold hands the whole day long

and feel as if nothing can go wrong

until the birds do end their song

    yep, this is one of my favorites. there’s just something about adventures and a marigold that make great lines to unfold:] this poem is so light hearted and fun that it is kind of catchy. but i dont want to beat a dead horse, just wanted to say kudos on an awesome poem.
