Beside A River (poem)

Beside a river came a lonely man

His days of youth had left him long ago

Yet in his eyes remained a treasured glow

A memory of how it all began

-

And there amid hidden place of day

Where no one but the sun disturbed his peace

As cares for all about him would decease

Again the river put on Joyous play

-

Its waves entwined to form a gentle dance

Its crystal clear devotion drew a song

A kiss caressed the mists it would prolong

A dream perhaps an echo of romance

-

So on it flowed mid fantasies sublime

As every stroke new beauty promised more

Which took an old man’s heart to shores before

With her there truly was this lavish time

I love the peacefulness of this poem, Martin. The opening photo is calming and the words flow well.
