•A LIFE FORSEEN? (an attempt at a Pastoral poem)

Spring and a new catchment has arrived with envy
so tiny and yet loud enough to awake the gods even
this elfin born untouched by evil sees only what he needs
and as time goes by will grow older and wiser to the world

Summer, brings a child running and laughing in the fields
he sees no wrong but everything is enjoyable and exciting
there is so much to explore to find out about this world of his

Autumn and the boy has disappeared into manhood where he...
has found new horizons, new paths to take, home means nothing
but a phone call or a quick hello, the disappearance until the next time

Winter sets a new time limit, with a new family and children of his own
the years are now showing the strain of time and time is becoming a burden
still he trudges on until the coldness sets in and his bones feel it more
snow and ice settle around and as he lays in bed surrounded by shadows
he finally fades from this world to which he came in the summer months.
