Tomorrow?

One day I was walking along a sea shore
On which played the waters, so sprightly they were
And as they splashed, they sang a song
It was a lovely, enchanting song
Gratifying my heart, my mind, my soul
They sang for me, for themselves, for all

Then to me, a fragrance reached
So profound it was, that it made me follow
And led me to another sea
A sea of flowers, a sea of colour

Green, orange, purple they were
And of all the colors I could think of
They signified the alluring beauty of life
In between them, I could not help a smile

Out of the blue, above the field;
Lightning flashed and thunder rung
It could be heard loud and clear
It heralded the arrival of rain
Which washed away my sins
And swept away my fears

The rain did stop but reminded me of
how wonderful the nature is

But just as I was returning through the woods
came on the wind, a distant sound
It was the malicious cutting of trees
The trees could not wail
The trees could not cry

But deep inside my heart I could hear
Their cries for help, their fear for death
It made me think for a moment in sorrow-

The Eden that I saw today
Would it be there for me tomorrow?

A nice poem. Good Read. Though I think you could do witha different title. Still poet's own choice is final...anyway I really liked it.

I really like this peice. I am not sure how to correct the errors after they were submitted. If you find out how to correct errors in an already submitted peice you should let me know. :D

I am the poet of this. There are plenty of errors there. Can they be corrected?
