My sixth tribute is to Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822), who was one of the major English Romantic poets of the 2nd generation.
He was regarded as a fine lyric, as well an influential & philosophical poet in the English language.
I have used some prompts from Shelley's Poem, 'The Triumph of Life' to pen my verse.
Kiss of day
Sweet dreams brood
Celebrate 'The Triumph of Life',
dispel darkness, destroy strife;
Get inspired by P.B.Shelley,
pen verses of verve, in a volley...
Ravaged by freezing mountain snows,
the leafless trees lay bare;
The sleeping tempest is devoid of her throes,
sweet dreams brood in pre-dawn prayer;
An awakened earth shrugs off her icy shroud,
and welcomes the kiss of day with flair;
Famished nestlings chirp clear and loud,
Melodious dew sings, in the smiling air...
