Swaying Sycamores

A Song of Serenity

By Dilip gurjarPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

Swaying sycamores, standing tall,

Softly swishing, soothing all,

Summer sunshine, sparkling streams,

Serenading, sweetest dreams.

Scented, serene, stillness sings,

Savoring, sacred, sacred things,

Soothing sounds, softly sung,

Serenity, sought and sprung.

Swaying sycamores, shade serene,

Sultry summer, serene and clean,

Sublime stillness, stretching skies,

Sensational, simple sighs.

Sweetly singing, summer breeze,

Swishing, swaying, simply seize,

Serenely, softly, sweetest sway,

Savoring, serene, summer day.

Serenading, symphony of sound,

Serenity, silently surrounds,

Swaying sycamores, sublime scene,

Soothing soul, serene serene.

Softly swaying, sacred space,

Subtle symphony, simple grace,

Serenity, softly sought,

Swaying sycamores, softly wrought.

Scented serenity, swaying breeze,

Sweetly singing, summer trees,

Sensual, serene, sublime and still,

Swaying sycamores, soothing thrill.

Savoring, serene, summer day,

Serenading, symphony sway,

Soothing soul, sacred space,

Swaying sycamores, serene embrace.

Serenity, softly spoken,

Swaying sycamores, serene token,

Sultry summer, sacred time,

Swaying sycamores, sublime climb.

Savoring, serenity, simply being,

Swaying sycamores, softly seeing,

Silent stillness, sacred sound,

Soothing soul, serene surround.

Swaying sycamores, standing tall,

Softly swishing, soothing all,

Summer sunshine, sparkling streams,

Serenading, sweetest dreams.
