Come – let me take you to the fields
Of rippling stalks in the sunlight
Our lives are a canvas
Of monochrome grays,
So let us be together
To forget it.
Through the whispering forest we’ll glide,
Barefoot without fear
For the earth’s pulse
Thrums against our time-hardened heels
And on this day of dancing rays,
What could bring us harm?
We’ll bend to every passing fancy,
Weave daisy haloes
Each to crown the other
And at the end of the day
With the blazing sky beating fierce accompaniment,
Around and under,
Like an endless daisy chain,
We’ll dance
A tribute to the coming dusk.

The author's comments:
This is the second poem in a six-poem cycle I wrote, which describes my relationship with my boyfriend. I chose to have it set in a field because I live in a rather large city, and there aren't too many of those around. It seems like the perfect place to escape to, really - just wandering in a space that's completely empty except for the tall grass, and being completely surrounded by nature.
