this one I keep reading over and over - I don't know all the symbolism of bluebells but I love the sound of the word and the imagery in the poem!

Thanks Alan. weirdly I had written a poem just moments ago with bluebells and bees within. I back watched a video I took a couple of weeks back in a local nature reserve.

I love the specificity of naming the flower (flora) and how the strength of "carrying" and "into" elevate the poem aided by the consonance of 'drift' and 'dusk', plus the hidden consonance of the r-letter in 'caRRying' and 'dRift' with 'rain'.


Wonderfully atmospheric with bluebells (a very British countryside visual) and the rain during dusk.


warmest regards,

Alan

beautiful, touching the conscience. The blue bell in the temple guides the soul in old age, for me this is a gentle spiritual.. thank you for reminding dear
