Down Roads

We walked down those roads,
not knowing where we’d been.
We walked down those roads, 
round brook and round fen.

We spent all our days 
in barley and rye
and we sang to the stars  
and had stars in our eyes.

We spent all our days 
near loch and near sound.
We all walked alone and 
we all walked as one.
We all walked together and 
we wandered around.

We heard angels sing 
when we had ears for such things
and we sang to ourselves 
when we had ears for naught.

We were lost to our selves
for much of the time,
and we all lost our souls 
‘midst the rack and the rime.





A piece that may be trying to become something more, but I like it as it is as well.  
Even if that third stanza doesn't want to behave...

  1. i am probably gonna blush hard for saying this – but i will anyways.
    whenever i see something new you wrote, it’s like opening a box of chocolates i saved for ‘special occasions’ and taking a piece, tasting it with relish.
    i so adore this. dissolves slowly on the tongue.
