The Meadow


        On a crisp autumn afternoon, I sat idly under an enormous oak tree

watching as a whirlwind whisked across the rolling hills of  the meadow.  As it

passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to

the oak tree.  The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing

about the meadow.  They were sporting their new fall colors of red, orange,

brown, and yellow.   The brittle autumn leaves seemed to be having a party.  As

the party moved out of sight, I began to think about the last time I visited the

meadow.  The memories of my last visit are vivid with relaxed and peaceful

thoughts  motivated by the images, scents, and sounds of the meadow.


        The beauty of the meadow in the summer is unequaled.  My memories

contained many images of this special place.  Snow covered mountains extend high

above the heavens; thus, setting the backdrop to the meadow.  Wildflowers

Essay The Invigorating Meadow - The Invigorating Meadow The burgeoning green of the meadow in May was gloriously lush, radiant really. I searched for enough descriptive words to distinguish the greens I saw—emerald and viridian; olive, pea and lime; verdigris and malachite. I became giddy surrounded by robust greenery. Indeed, it was a green felicity, and the trials and doldrums of winter disappeared with the exhilaration I felt watching emerging blades, vines, and shoots. As the meadow’s growth flourished, I kept track of the succession of plants....   [tags: Observation Essay, Descriptive Essay] 1227 words

Essay on The Meadow Pond - A short walk to Meadow Pond: following the stone wall up the dirt road, FOR SALE sign next to an empty house with a clear-cut yard. Struggling to escape the perpetual thoughts that always seem to pull me in – where do we go from here. – a golden smile in the afternoon sunlight – branded to my mind like a red hot iron, trying to dismiss them. Looking up at the road ahead of me, I smile – only thoughts. The cold air hits the skin of my face and I stick my hands in my pockets. Pete, our neighbor, pops out of the bend in the road, walking his old black lab....   [tags: Descriptive Writing, Descriptive Essay] 749 words

Essay on The Meadow - The Meadow There was excellent July day, one of those days, which occur only then, when weather was established for a long time. The sky is clear from the earliest morning; morning dawn does not blaze by the fire: it spills by gentle bloom. Sun - not fiery, not incandesced, as during the hot drought, not dim- crimson, as before grow brown, but bright and peacefully floats under the narrowband long cloudlet, fresh will brighten and will be immersed and its violet fog. Upper, thin edge of the extended cloudlet will begin to sparkle by snakes; their luster is such to the luster of forged silver......   [tags: Papers] 2618 words

Descriptive Essay: A Beautiful Place - I think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy a lot of times, years ago. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again. Perhaps I made it beautiful in my mind. This place is meaningful to me because it is part of the county I loved, is part of the county where I grew up and is part of my childhood. This place is in the country in an old region named Appalachia, a small piece of the Appalachian Mountains, in a town named Pikeville....   [tags: Descriptive Essay Example] 696 words

Nature in the Poems: The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop and The Meadow Mouse by Theodore Roethke - ... Set in a different scene, the fisherman in “The Fish,” quickly relates to the fish he catches and soon realizes his love of nature and the crudeness of the wilderness. “Sun-cracked thwarts” and “the bailer rusted orange” are the images used to describe the rented boat. These words, sun-cracked and rusted orange connote beauty and elegance, adjectives not commonly used to describe a rusty boat. This man learns the beauty of nature and his love of that beauty. Both men learn about themselves and how they feel about nature from their encounters with wildlife....   [tags: Interaction, Wildlife]

Descriptive Essay - The Swimming Pool - Descriptive Essay - The Swimming Pool The tiles were still dirty from the residue of chlorine and pittle combined into one thick layer of impossible gunk. This gunk surrounded the edge of pool right where the water met the lowest part of the tile and was even apparent underneath the shallow water fountain around the back end. The ring had been worn away in spots where the missus had got so fed up that she was gonna put an end to this "ring of filth" once and for all. A few times she had started, but had always found a broken nail or straying hair to become spontaneously obsessive about when her arm got tired of scrubbing....   [tags: Description, Observation] 543 words

Descriptive Essay - The Baseball Diamond - The Baseball Diamond Many people don't understand the point in playing baseball. Why would someone swing a stick, hit a ball, and try to get back to where they started before the ball returns. What pleasure is there in that. Why not participate in a sport like wrestling or track where there is an obvious level of individual improvement and therefore pleasure. Well, I play baseball because of the love I have for the sport, and because of the feeling that overwhelms me every time I walk onto a baseball field....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing] 1487 words

Descriptive Essays - The Horse Farm - The Horse Farm I am jarred out of a relaxing sleep by a voice yelling my name in a loud whisper, and a light burning through my eyelids. Groggily, I open my eyes to see my father standing in the doorway to my messy room. He tells me that I need to get going, that it is 3:00 a.m., and I'm burning daylight. I find my clothes and get dressed. The whole time I wonder why I get up this early to visit the rugged outdoors. I want to go back to bed, but I know my dad will be back in to make sure I am getting ready, in a little bit....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing] 556 words

Descriptive Essay - The Pier - Naples, not the most exciting place on the planet. No, people have seemed to conclude that Naples, FL is the place to go for a nice, relaxing retirement. And I have to agree, they are right. Naples is a place filled with tee times on golf courses, lunches at country clubs, longs walks along the beach and a casual stroll on the downtown sidewalks, sipping on a frappacino, all accompanied by sunny, cloudless days. So, what is a teenager to do. Despite the “elderly-friendly” appeal, Naples has proved to be somewhat teen-friendly....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing] 377 words

Descriptive Essay -The Dump - The Dump     My mom and I were cleaning up our attic this weekend, and in the process I found all sorts of old junk that I had forgotten about. Of course, I wanted to keep everything I saw; otherwise, I would not have stashed it there in the first place. But after standing over me and prying my hands off of every item that I encountered, my mom finally convinced me to haul all of my broken treasures to the Dump. I wince at the thought of having to brave the ever-present gloom that reigns there....   [tags: Descriptive Essay, Descriptive Writing] 683 words
