Path Less Trodden (poem)

Upon the path less trodden often heard

Amazement which sets reasoning astray

What once was taught unreal is free to play

And hopes which were forgotten are re-stirred


A stream of dreams flows wonders to the sky

The flowers shower music to the mind

Its start the hearts of lovers has designed

A chance to dance with flings which one may try


So what would be the meaning of a tear

To sit amidst a season filled with want

What shadow lurks this all abound to haunt

What echo left unsung is now so near


Upon this path less trodden so alone

So many stars to fill the what might be

Each one a wish away from hidden fee

That one may have to travel on their own

An interesting thought for a poem great words expressed with such patience and every wish is a dream that keeps one going on each day

Wow Martin, this is powerful! I had my emotions so invested in your words and the moments... as soon as the music started; I felt my heart fall into my stomach. Beautiful!
