A Forest Path: Goethe Stanza



A beautiful forest path I trail,

lined by lavender flowers,
their fragrances in my heart prevail,

I walk bare foot for countless hours.

Tall, mighty trees cover the dusty track,

soft breeze peeps through canopies,
twirling leaves across zodiac,

birds flicker around relish sweet berries.

Carpet of green grass rolls all over,

gently welcoming sweet songs of forest,
adding to it a tinge of falvour the wild clover,

bees dance around singing chorus.

A lovely walk to remember,

heart of a forest so tender,
gloriously it shines as an ember.

A natures’ marvelous splendour.

Goethe Stanza : Each stanza comprises of a single line, a couplet and a single line. Each single line rhymes with a line from the couplet, one starting and one completing the stanza.
