One day I was walking along a sea shore
On which played the waters, so sprightly they were
And as they splashed, they sang a song
It was a lovely, enchanting song
Gratifying my heart, my mind, my soul
They sang for me, for themselves, for all

Then to me, a fragrance reached
So profound it was, that it made me follow
And led me to another sea
A sea of flowers, a sea of colour

Green, orange, purple they were
And of all the colors I could think of
They signified the alluring beauty of life
In between them, I could not help a smile

Out of the blue, above the field;
Lightning flashed and thunder rung
It could be heard loud and clear
It heralded the arrival of rain
Which washed away my sins
And swept away my fears

The rain did stop but reminded me of
how wonderful the nature is

But just as I was returning through the woods
came on the wind, a distant sound
It was the malicious cutting of trees
The trees could not wail
The trees could not cry

But deep inside my heart I could hear
Their cries for help, their fear for death
It made me think for a moment in sorrow-

The Eden that I saw today
Would it be there for me tomorrow?

Sat down one fine night, and wrote my heart down. This is probably an year or two old. Rhyming and simple.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

A nice poem. Good Read. Though I think you could do witha different title. Still poet's own choice is final...anyway I really liked it.
