Zanze: Green & Yellow

Green and yellow fields, well maintained
by animals contained within.
The produce of the field sustains;
the plight of man and beast akin.

Green and yellow fields; well
do their crops grow each year,
but for them trees are fell.
The way ahead seems clear.

Green and yellow;
colours of life,
mostly mellow.
Sickness and strife;

Green and
growing. Remain
the order of the land;
green and yellow fields well maintained.

Sonnet: Lambs

Lambs in fields seem to grow faster each year;
Growing to look like their mothers, before
Winter will come and soon we ignore
their youth, replaced by usefulness or fear.

Their lives belong to the highest bidder
who may have travelled from the farthest shore,
for a new stock to toil in daily chore,
purpose from purchase abundantly clear.

Yes, green and yellow fields are well maintained;
grains and fodder collected for winter,
not all animals purchased are sustained.
Instead the slaughter house is the winner.

But comes back Spring and the fields fill again;
this will be the way until farming ends.

Zanze: Last Year’s Sparrow

Last year’s Sparrow has returned plump

Egg heavy, she builds her first nest

No rest until every lump

Is removed, and her nest is best.

Last year’s Sparrow returned

She looks now for a first lover

Eager to show what she has learned

And ready to be a mother

Last year’s Sparrow

Sits on her eggs

Under narrow

Feathers and legs

Last year’s

Home now a stump

The Sparrow has no fears

Last year’s Sparrow has returned plump

Shout out to http://areyouthrilled.com for her amazing prompt, ‘Last year’s Sparrow has returned plump’.

I really enjoyed writing this. 😊

Zanze: When Snow Falls Down

When snow falls down the ground is white

And each breath hangs high in the air

Be it morning or be it night

When snow falls a fresh new layer.

When snow falls down the ground

Just simply disappears

With each fresh step the sound

Will dissipate your fears.

When snow falls down

From high above

Across the town

White as a dove.

When snow

Falls it is bright

Each falling flake will glow

When snow falls down the ground is white.
