Sunset’s Hall (poem)

What were the echoes heard down sunset’s hall

The passage of the memories now spent

How often footsteps fell along this path

The shadows of the pictures will reflect

-

As time takes on a meaning of its own

Another web is cast around his soul

His heart is drawn to place his mind won’t go

As mist down sunset’s hall begins to clear

-

The thrill seen in his truth brought on a rain

As voices of his vision shouted out

This glory of an everlasting dream

A speck of dust which someone brushed away

-

Yet from the dark appeared a hand of hope

As echoes dance into a newfound sight

A breath a sigh a meaning to an end

The sun still shines at sunset after all

I loved this, Mhatter99! I am currently playing "Nearer My God to Thee" and that seemed to fit with this poem! Voted it up!

Very lovely piece here. Initially, at the beginning I was reminded of the Eagles "Hotel California" with the "voices down in corridor" ...

Very beautiful music and video, so very visually pleasing

God bless,

Faith Reaper

There's something about evening light streaming down a dark hallway. The metaphor is apt; I love the last line. Beautiful poem!
