Yeah, Melissa, I can now see how your poem has been inspired by the song 'Starry, starry Night. Now it seems to be playing in my head, as well. I loved your pem. Ulla:)))

Hi Melissa,
I love that song. And I can sing your words to the melody. This would make a terrific contest idea.
I especially like this verse,
"Grassy, grassy fields,
crowned with golden daffodils,
swaying there upon the hills
in colors painted by a brilliant sun."
Just imagine the flowers in Heaven.
One suggestion,
"(that) sings a song (that) stirs a dormant land."
(that sings a song to stir a dormant land.)

Nice piece of work! Thanks for sharing, my dear!

Cheers,
Kimbob

Your lovely songlike poem (I like "Starry, Starry Night" too) is vividly descriptive; the tone is one of reverence and appreciation for God, who
"painted" awesome scenes for us to enjoy.

Melissa, good job with this poem that rhymes and appears to have a changing rhythm. I don't know exactly what to call it. Who is famous for singing "starry, starry night?" Bill

    It is a song that is from back in the day sung by Don McLean... look it up on YouTube if you like. Thank you.

What a beautifully painted scene to back your great lyrics to the Don McLean song, "Starry, Starry night" you managed to fit your talented, poetic ability to perfectly compose new lyrics. The Germans have a perfect expression to that propensity. An "ear worm", well done, beautifully written blessings, Roy

I'm not familiar with that song, but I like your poem very much. I especially like 'velvet tethers,.' and the first stanza. Beautiful presentation. Perfect picture for this piece.

    Hi Yvonne. The song, Starry, Starry Night was sung by Don McLean back in the 70s. Its about Vincent Van Gogh ~ very famous. Look it up on YouTube if you want. Thanks.

Neither a parody nor a pastiche, this is more an inspred reaction to the original. I checked the original lyrics and listen to a YouTube recording of the song. You have turned Van Gogh's night into day with this well-executed poem.

What a wonderful poem to read on such a cold, dreary day. For a moment, I felt like it was spring again. Your poem is well-written, very descriptive. I could smell the flowers, feel the gentle wind. Hear little birds chirp in the distance. It was so peaceful, serene. Think I'll go play in my fictional world where it's sunny and warm.

I heard that song the other day on Pandora. This is a star filled field of gold here. I loved you poem and bouquet offering today. It drew velvet tethers round my soul.
Sending you my best today as always,
Sal xoxo

A very well-written poem about the grassy fields swaying in the breeze through the trees. Daffodils are pretty in full bloom to see in masses Inthe fields where no man's hand planted.
