Boston Pops


Swan Boats in Boston Public Garden
(An Acrostic Poem)
Serene scene on water
Winsome swans glide
Attracting fascination
Nobly dignified
Bucolic background
Objet d'art to admire
Arcadian rhythm soothes
Tranquil cadence plays
Surreal moment mesmerizes
Illuminative waters delight
Nature beckons reflection
Botanical beauty of Boston
Old-world survives into new
Sublime recreational form
Transcends urban environment
Opalescent pond shimmers
Nostalgia flows bittersweet
Placid for a time
Untroubled by routine
Beyond scope of concerns
Limpid relaxation
Idyllic pastime
Captivating and magical




All  photo's were taken at the Boston Public Gardens....beautiful year round but especially in the spring...

These are all just stunning. They really make me want to see all this in person! That first image is glorious. Have never seen anything like it.

Ah Boston, a home for me many years ago at a young age! Still have fond memories, and these gorgeous, Spring images have taken me back to a more simple time. I'd love to know more about the poem . . . was it composed by you? If so, please sign! I want you to have credit for all your creative endeavors!
I love that you visit these gardens a few times a year, it seems! Happy warmer, blooming weather to YOU! Maine's waiting for us! We're ready! xox A

What a beautiful city! It looks like Boston has kept some of it's Old World charm. The spring flowers are a beautiful color. I do really love where the succulents are placed, it looks like a place of honor. :) Wonderful images!

Thanks everyone for your visit and your lovely comments. The Boston Gardens really was a treat this spring. I never even made it over to the Boston Commons...and yes, Susan, wouldn't it be lovely is spring flowers lasted longer than just in the spring...LOL
