The Spring Of What Must Be (poem)

Updated on November 14, 2012

He took his lover by the hand

To view the future fate had planned

To peer into their destiny

Tomorrows surely must be grand

Therein the spring of what must be


A legend lived from days of old

Of waters which the future told

For all who dared to set chance free

This mystery the woods still hold

The whispered spring of what must be


His lady asked what’s there to know

That we won’t learn as love will grow

So let us dream of fortune’s key

And with a kiss she said let’s go

Away from spring of what must be


Sad wasted words he pressed ahead

He couldn’t hear truth heart had shed

Strange quest was all his mind could see

That called him there to kneel at bed

To gaze in spring of what must be


And there he saw their days and night

Each sorrow’s tear each mournful plight

Behind each Joy sore misery

And in the end was one lost light

Foretold by spring of what must be


What did you see his love did say

And with a kiss turned her away

He told her tales of warmth and glee

For her sweet smile he’ll not betray

He’ll be her spring of what must be

      Mhatter, this is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. There are times when we should jut enjoy what we have in the here and now, by looking to deeply into the future we can lose the present.

      Deep, sad but always romantic.

      Sometimes, silence is the best way.

      And with a kiss turned her away

      He told her tales of warmth and glee

      For her sweet smile he’ll not betray

      He’ll be her spring of what must be

      I love all you poems, of course they reach my heart. The videos go well with your poems, but the words mean much more.

      The video was a delightful interlude ...slowing down and embracing the moment...sometimes when I read poetry I just like to feel it and this is one of those.

      "Behind each joy...some misery..." not getting lost in it but moving on to discover what the spring holds for our lives may keep us moving forth. The mystery unravels at each turn. And perhaps what each of us sees in the spring is an application for our life. I may be way off as I really do not like to try to read my meaning into what others write in poetic form..but this spoke to me and I had to respond. ps
