Featured Review on this writing by KatV

was thinking about snowy woods and Robert Frost and wrote a poem related to him.

 

 

thinking of Robert Frost (new title)

 

 

 

thinking of Robert Frost

 

 

in a new england village

an old man wandered

the road towards me

thick crop of frosted hair

 

snowflakes started to fall

 

he shuffled along

looking here

looking there

 

a flight of geese

flew in a perfect V pattern

south

 

he watched them disappear

then walked

towards me slowly

a bit confused

 

hello I said

lovely morning

he looked startled

then greeted me

 

where is a fine man like you

traveling on a snowy day

 

he looked at me quizzically

I am not sure

but I will know

when I get there

 

we stood not saying much

then he said “I have miles

to go before I sleep”

 

I said that sounds familiar

he looked at me smiled and said

yes it should

 

he continued down the road

I quietly followed him

 

in about a mile he slowed

searching for something

 

soon he came to a

small overgrown lane

slowly he turned

disappearing into the

overgrowth

 

following I turned into

the lane

and came upon

an old cemetery

 

the old man had vanished

 

he had found what was beyond

the deep and snowy woods and

the end of the miles

 

now he could sleep

now he could sleep

I really like this poem Clyde. I wasn't sure where you were taking me, but I couldn't help but follow. I was intrigued. I was surprised where we ended up, but it made perfect sense. Clever poem. Nicely written. Write On!

If I had a negative, the spacing is a bit much for me, but (Hay!) what do I know of today's writing? I'm pretty old school, and old. --- I did like the mystical ending and the trip along the way. All in all, two thumbs up, Clyde.

Thanks JEF. I don't know what happened to the spacing when I published it on Booksie. I don't like the spacing either. Let me see if I can copy and attach her the way it is supposed to be.


thinking of a poet


in a new england village
an old man wandered
the road towards me
thick crop of frosted hair

snowflakes started to fall

he shuffled along
looking here
looking there

a flight of geese
flew in a perfect V pattern
south

he watched them disappear
then walked
towards me slowly
a bit confused

hello I said
lovely morning
he looked startled
then greeted me

where is a fine man like you
traveling on a snowy day

he looked at me quizzically
I am not sure
but I will know
when I get there

we stood not saying much
then he said “I have miles
to go before I sleep”

I said that sounds familiar
he looked at me smiled and said
yes it should

he continued down the road
I quietly followed him

in about a mile he slowed
searching for something

soon he came to a
small overgrown lane
slowly he turned
disappearing into the
overgrowth

the lane
and came upon
an old cemetery

the old man had vanished

he had found what was beyond
the deep and snowy woods and
the end of the miles

now he could sleep
now he could sleep
