It Took Him (poem)

Updated on July 16, 2012

It took him to spring that far away land

Where dreams cast by stars were always at hand

The smallest delights somehow became grand

Endless tomorrows were at his command

-

Here kisses would rain far more than he planned

And passionate flames were easily fanned

As flowers of love were set into flight

Their reason has left yet they understand

-

Such memories made without a demand

The seas up ahead seemed smooth and bright

Yet somehow he’s blind to his human plight

And soon he will feel things start to disband

-

Those things of his youth will vanish from sight

The fears of the old begin to ignite

What specter is this which clenches him tight

A shadow unknown with grief to expand

-

Then from his garden comes his ray of light

The scent of jasmine to return things right

There as he rested for his future fight

It took him to spring and kissed him goodnight

      Voted up and beautiful You blew me away with the first wonderful words

      It took him to spring that far away land

      Where dreams cast by stars were always at hand

      The smallest delights somehow became grand

      Endless tomorrows were at his command

      A lovely poem shows your creative talent well.

      You are expressing the truth verses fantasy in this poem and it was done in an expressive unique way.
