Title Ode to Nature
Description ODE TO HATUBE1 Devey S. Olsen Preston, Idaho Non-Professional Division Third Place Poetry What did the warm wind whisper to those tall poplar trees, As they bowed their acknowledgment in the brisk evening breeze? Did it whisper words of love, with a promise to return, As the leaves giggled gleefully in the late evening sun? What did the flower say to the busy honey-bee. Ae it offered its bounteous gift of pollen and nectar, free? Did it whisper words of love, with a promise of greater yield, When the bee came again across the meadow to the field? What did the tall grass whisper to the early morning gun, As the first rays burst upon it, on a lovely morn in June? Did it nod a loving welcome, and accept its warm embrace, And invite a kiss of love from that brilliant shining face? If we knew the various language that our mother nature speaks, What a ki3s of love we'd recognize in the breeze upon our cheeks. Inspired by the memory of the tall poplar trees of the past. -60-
