Audio: "Among the Meadows," read by Rosie Jones

Below

the cherry blossom clouds—amongst the bowing heads—of daisies and—the beat of bees
lies
a gravestone with a name that—

i cannot quite read.


the moss climbs—upon its face and—the ants flock around its base and—
i settle down against the grass

singing songs of presentPast.


beside

a deep azure tree—nestled atop the gentle fronds—of lilac grass and—summer wine
i lie
heather heavy breathe

high
and on the scent of
Time.


Rosie Jones is a 17-year-old student who once wrote “wanabe aurthor,” bad spelling and all, on the edges of a Jacqueline Wilson novel. Now she has settled on writing messy poetry and prose, not for destiny or dreams, but simply because thoughts spill out of her in written form.

This is an amazing poem! The mixed feelings we have when we leave our home or city we grew is beautifully portrayed
