The Poets

Yonder Ridge


The ram that edges mountain tops
That nary knew a dell
Thinks nothing of the falling rocks
Nor where their falling fell
No, what a ram is thinking of
Is this- and I will tell
His love, his love on yonder ridge
Aside that other male

Chills! I love this one, John! A beautiful example of how poetry can take so few words to describe lifetimes of desire.

:'( so sorry

I agree completely with Kendra Lise... and with GYPSYWOMAN... and with Livabug (though the instant my eyes lit upon the words I knew your heart)

Beauty from ashes.......
