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.
