24th Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Where Sweetness Lies

by BeardedPoet

"Where Sweetness Lies"

Perhaps it is a fool who dreams 
Of ripened fruit before 
The seed inspires
But it is wrong to quiet the heart 
When it has seen 
Where sweetness lies
Then soften its voice to whisper
No more than laughter
As but a smile 
Said of wonder and endless time 
Past and future oft
At Janus' door
So as to question of our claim
This field would bare
A fruitless fall
Leave me then, as I lay here
With care and grace begot
By blissful stare
