Song in the Wood

This way, this way, come and hear,
You that hold these pleasures dear;
Fill your ears with our sweet sound,
Whilst we melt the frozen ground.
This way come, make haste, O fair!
Let your clear eyes gild the air;
Come, and bless us with your sight;
This way, this way, seek delight!

~ John Fletcher (1579-1625), English playwright;
from the comedy The Little French Lawyer,
written with Philip Massinger

I enjoyed this little poem entitled,"Song in the Wood".

You envision the woods speaking to those who walk through. The woods are inviting us to stop and appreciate the beautiful gift of nature, by taking in the sights, sounds and scents of the forest.

I found it very soothing and enjoyed the picture the poem evoked. I'm attracted to the rhyming nature as well.

Thanks for posting it!
