Classic and Contemporary Poetry
INVITATION, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: If you are weary come and sit beside
Last Line: His own blue sky!
Subject(s): Old Age
IF you are weary come and sit beside
A simple garden pool.
Its quiet loveliness will soothe your heart
While water, silver cool,
Makes murmur through the mossy green of rocks.
Here scarlet fishes hide
Among the limpid shadows in the deep
Where waving grasses bide,
While drooping willows dip their lacy fronds,
And lotus buds unfold
Pale creamy petals heavy with the scent
Of summer ages old.
Sit here at peace beside this crystal spring
And dream, and then know why
God loves a pool so much He lets it hold
His own blue sky!
