A River Flows (poem)

Updated on June 13, 2013

Within a hidden garden river flows

Sweet flowers hide its secrets from the sun

Forever bears the tale that there was spun

As sadness brings a melody to close


She’s there beside her weeping so undone

She’s there aside the pain of sorrow’s throws

And why he left her only ever knows

A bitter game was played which no one won


But river flowed its destiny resigned

Within a dream of hope its course did stray


It left its birth and hiding place behind

To put refreshing glory on display


Until a seed of promise it did find

Which grew to love her on another day

      Beautiful indeed. I thought it was going to be a sad one at first, but it is hopeful instead.

      A very nice poem, with really good imagery. The lusic was very "lush" sounding. Nice. :)

      Sounds like death or one life leads to the birth of another. Fabulous work, Martin.

      Beautiful. I love it. Some of life leaves one with memories of regret and words and actions one can't take back. This poem brought that to me.
