Evening song

Edging to the water,
thick the alder grow;
there — in dappled light —
a nightingale is trilling
boldly for the day to end
and on my way for home
the tires of my bicycle sings,
with every pedal-stroke,
that evening’s here for you.

Today Kim hosts the Quadrille at dVerse and the word of today is cycle… which for me has to be about my bicycle ride to work.

  1. It’s a gentle ride for you this evening, Bjorn – no speeding, no uphill struggle, just enjoying the scenery. I enjoyed riding along with you!

  2. Riding in the company of a nightingale. What a lovely ride. It is 94F here today! Good day for an early morning or evening ride. Gentle and romantic.

  3. Love the image of “alder” 😊 and the idea of a nightingale accompanying on the ride. 💜

  4. lovely image. recall the hum of tyres on the pavements. I was able to commute by bicycle for a few years, it was such a delight.

    and on my way for home
    the tires of my bicycle sings,
    with every pedal-stroke,
    that evening’s here for you.

    Thus ended a great day followed by a wonderful evening.

  6. enjoyed the poem. love engaged senses : the nightingale sounds, the alder, the dappled light — all things you can’t see/hear if you were to drive home in a car.

  7. I love how you captured nature in your bicycle ride home, Björn. I think you’ve inspired me to go outside and see if I can hear some birds trilling.
