Songs From The Heart VI: There Is A Green Hill Far Away.

Today I have chosen 'There is a green hill far away.

It is a beautiful song and I can remember singing it so very often in our school choir.

The words refer to Jesus on the cross and the sacrifice he made for mankind .

This song fills me with a sense of peace.

Therefore I take the meaning further because to me it's always referred to finally finding our true place in life ,a place where we feel we truly belong.

A place of true honesty from within!!

I hope you enjoy !!

Rhyme:Hearts So Full.

A choir of voices

So flowing so tender

A song so meaningful

I always remember.

x

A chorus so throbbing

Voices to treasure

They fill my memory

With nothing but pleasure.

x

That beautiful green hill

In my heart forever.

Will inspire and thrill me

Today or whenever.

x

Come share my seat

This song I share

Our hearts so full

Of love and care.

Freeverse:There Is A green Hill.

Rolling and flowing

sweet pure scenes.

Tender

precious

fulfilling

inspiring

as each scene

swells

in sounds

in beauty

in love

in inspiration.

A pure virginal

love

carry upwards

swelling

throbbing

each tone

each

soprano

contralto

tenor

and

bass

over mountains

up to the hill

so green

now not so

far away!

Leaving a trailing share of

love

care

inspiration

and

hope.

A promised land

brimming over with

promises

those we thought

with sad longing

would be

promises

never be kept.

Today a promise

tainted with

love

care

and

hope

kept and in swollen torrents

Filled with life;s nectar

so sweet

so magnified

so tainted

with magical dewdrops

so intense

each sparkle invites

each gleaming gem telling a story of its own

a story so positive

so inspiring

so real.

Cascading

in serene volumes

seeping into

each being

each heart

each spirit

before

settling into

our eternal souls.

There is a green hill far away!!

Haiku:We Walk Together.


Cascading beauty

So soft beneath each footstep

We walk together.

Rictameter: Belief.

Belief

A wondrous word

That promised paradise

Where each bird eternally sings

Each doubt is banished into oblivion

So serene and yet so fulfilled

Souls caress deep true love

Come share in my

Belief.




Magical sunset.

Good morning Eddy!

What a lovely way to begin my day! Thank you for this...as I look at the pictures, I am struck by how similar our countryside is to yours....we have more fir trees, but the same luscious green is dominant in your pictures as we see here.

Anyway, this is beautiful, but what else would I expect from you.

love,

bill

Well Billy my very dear friend there is one question i ask myself daily now :How on earth did I stay away from Hubpages for that length of time. However I think it was for a reason because I know I have returned in such a different frame of mind .

I am more sure of myself;I understand so much more and I know that i belong right here with my hub family.

thank you again and I am so glad you enjoyed this one.

have awonderful day.
