Chapter 33 of the book Carolina Pastorals
Pastoral romantic portrait of the sublime
"Falls Lake" by estory
Trees absolved by last year's rain
Wait patiently for judgement day.

A breeze comes in gentle whispers,
Reciting the evening vespers.

Humble butterfly angels
Kneel and say their prayers.

All that is left is Earth, water and air.
Nothing can trouble us anymore.

In the end, the trees let go of their leaves.
One by one, they rest in peace.


The book continues with Biltmore. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
This is a short poem in near rhyme couplets. There is no rhyme, but close enough sound associations to approximate it, creating something of a more subtle effect. I like subtlety. The images are classic romantic pastoral, the images of the sublimity of nature, symbolizing the sublimity of the spirit. There is peace, there is grace, in nature. That is an idea right from Coleridge, Wordsworth and the classic romantics. I still love that poetry and I had fun coming up with this little piece. I hope you enjoy it too. estory
