Others have written
of matters important,
I on the other hand
have written but of you,
cajoling words
to sing like a linnet
of the green gold summer
where the light’s never fading
in the endless minute
that I’m sitting with you.

This is a poem easy to sink into. And it brought me this:

Quote:The common linnet (Linaria cannabina) is a small passerine bird of the finch family, Fringillidae. It derives its scientific name from its fondness for hemp and its English name from its liking for seeds of flax, from which linen is made.

which I love so thank you. Thanks for posting. Smile

Hello Busker, this is very lovely.  I love how peaceful and wistful it feels.  I especially like "green gold summer" and "the endless minute."   Thank you for sharing.  Big Grin

Like a superb impressionist painting---the poem lets the light rush in through the canvas, illuminating its cascading appearance with intoxicating, brilliant, rapid and flowing brush-strokes and capturing a singular image which speaks directly towards the audience

who knew there was such a bird  Angry   with such a sweet name.   perhaps the passerine's fondness for hemp is an indication of how the bird likes to spend his recreational time.
