Pink and Green with Water

Of blessed Spring
White Winter sings.
From Summer’s heat
Fall retreats.

Fall retreats
From Summer’s heat.
White Winter sings
Of blessed Spring.

That’s so the landscape that we see
May praise and play repeatedly.

Text: Linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar. I am hosting today and the theme is “reverse poems”. These are poems where at least part of the poem reverses itself line-by-line. It is like a refrain in a song except the refrain is sung backwards. The pub opens at 3:00 PM EST.

Autumn Blooms

Author: Frank Hubeny

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. Excellent illustration of the prompt, Frank. We have worked on this form here at the Pub in the past. Thanks for resurrecting it. I am always amazed at how well the reversed lines work, changing the thrust, volition &POV.
