  October's Child

The Mūr Retreat

The stairway spills into the life-walk of a busy street,
where gentle are the breezes that sweep the concrete
in this little rustic town, known as The Mūr Retreat


Tree lined avenues enhance quiet conversations,
as intellectuals discuss their observations
of a few prosaic affairs, and alike occupations


Between the smile of the sun's long-armed rays,
cardinals flutter-paint shadows inside the maze
of a garden where the maestro often plays


A lollipop of colors form a touch-me-not rainbow
while lending vividness to a faded little bungalow
with a quaint personality and a rusty Dutch hoe


An elderly woman is knitting bits of lore
in skeins of historical color as she closes the door
On the final pages --- ending the ‘Thirty Years War'


So visit when you can, for it brings peace and rest
to the weary wanderer who has met life's test
wearing strands of emotions….. And conquering the crest

La Retraite de Mur
