Go Slow Part 2

 Sunset at Dalhousie














What wars fought, what battles cry?
What prizes won, what soldiers die?

He stands alone from dawn till dusk
A few hours smile, a few days brusk

What heavens behold, what winds obey
What waters run to, in cloaks of grey

The eve brings a beginning to the end of this story
The warrior sleeps in all his glory....

  2. I've actually spent about five minutes now thinking of a befitting adjective for the ethereal creativity that God has gifted you with. I give up as I'm not as expressive as you are.

    "Unforgettable lines" is all I'll say.

  3. woww... brilliant captures.. I can see why you are asking the sun to slow down. ;)

    And then I read your poem and I forgot about the sun. It was so serene and thought provoking. Simply brilliant.
