Stay The Road (poem)

Updated on February 7, 2014

What was there in the wind

Which wrestles with what was

Some song returning long ago

Just over a nearby hill

-

Stay the road to tomorrow

Stay the road so familiar

Stay the road of our fathers

Stay the road like the others

-

Yet yonder yearns the wind

Yielding youthful yesterdays

Another childish memory

Hiding somewhere past the hill

-

Stay the road of promises

Stay the road with helping hands

Stay the road to every plan

Stay the road so many paved

-

Still sweetly sings the wind

Serenade sent soothing searching soul

To stray away for a time

And join the secret beyond hill

-

So he left the road he traveled

To follow fancies flowing in the wind

And world of wonders waiting over hill

A life he never really knew

-

Still as the sunset sank upon a man

Still splendors set surprises all around

Still another wind another hill

Still he sits to sing a seasoned song

-

Stay the road

      Reminds a little of Frost's "Road Less Traveled" but with your style. I like the choice of the wind being what turns this man onto a different path. Well done and voted up.
