Red III

by Jem Croucher

A little bit of red came
to my driveway where it stayed
and stood alone, magnificent
with beauty there displayed
So gorgeous was its colour
that it brought a little tear
Vivid and resplendent
at this lovely time of year

Ruby Red

by Jem Croucher

Last summer I found rubies
They’d been kissed by the sun
They were so beautiful
and second to none
Growing there in abundance
in a meadowland field
A patch of pure treasure
from the sun’s warming yield

The Red trilogy #3

by Jem Croucher

 

Dancing and rhythmic, the red in the breeze
Born of the ocean close by
Challenged me there in its movement
To join in and give it a try
But I couldn’t even begin to match
the majesty of its grace
magnificent there in meadowlands
with wild flowers all in place
Such brilliance there, such glory
I was humbled to give voice
“Come look” I said, “Be thankful
And in this wonder here, rejoice”

The Red trilogy #2

by Jem Croucher

 

Blanket of red, warm on the ground
Enshrouds me where I lay
Such richness here unequalled
On this lovely summer’s day
Here I have rubies kissed by the sun
And I am bathed in liquid gold
Unparalleled, this treasure
Far more than I can hold
Such grandeur this, such wonder
Must not ever be concealed
“Come look”, I say “And witness
Nature’s wealth here now revealed”

The Red trilogy #1

by Jem Croucher

 

Happen chanced by a field of red
Its colour vivid there
Paused and took some photographs
Felt the need to share
Mesmerised by this spectacle
of rubies in the breeze
I felt a tear arising as
I fell down to my knees
Such scenes as these, such beauty
Must be shared with all around
“Come look” I say “And marvel
at this treasure I have found”
