The Sunset Calling (poem)

Updated on August 27, 2014

Search the sunset calling

Calling after me

Over meadows

Over blossoms

Over seasons of tomorrow


Searching sunset’s calling

Calling after me

Over all hopes

Over those dreams

Over the eyes taught how to see


And what did one expect to hear

Over the winds

Over the sands


Familiarly different view

Over the hills

Over the clouds


Reaching across what all has done

Over this span

Over this care


Searched for sunset’s calling

Calling after me

Over long years

Over false fears

Over the hands hoping to touch


And there in one’s glory it rests

Over the day

Over the fuss


Over the tears

Over the Joys

Over asking

Over reasons

Over all else

Over once more

      I really love the pattern and the use of "over" in this poem, Martin. The poem just had so much life as I read it.

      Love this one, Mh! It is always good when we reach that point when we are finally over ... all.

      God bless you

      Amazing words Martin, I'm amazed you could find so many things to be "over".

      Lovely, beautiful poem, Martin. It seems like a closure of somethings deep. I love it.
