Shuffling softly now
Rocking back and forth as one
A vale of tall yellow grass

Yeah, I know Pen. 5-7-5 just couldn't contain my talents, I needed more syllables! Actually, I just wanted to try out an alternative, albeit disallowed, method. Believe it or not, this took me a half-hour, and I still don't like it. I was going for sibilance, cacophony, sibilance. Didn't.

Happy to Oblige ark
ark, firstly, I would like to thank you for reading *MEADOW*, one of the most read poems on which will surely go on to remembered by the masses. Heh.

I admit the image I used was not perfect, but when I said "as one" I referred to the motion of grass in the wind. Though each stalk moves individually, when they all move together, it produces an effect which makes them all seem intrinsically connected.

thanks for the clarification, washer. sure, yeah: i've seen grass do that.

i'll just blithely pass by your half-concealed reference, okay? ;)
