A Highland Stream

A Highland Stream

She rises high above the glen, and flows
beneath a rustic bridge that man has made.
She passes stately pines in serried rows
all standing straight, like soldiers on parade
Then winding on through banks where heather grows
and purple mountain thyme abounds in shade
She meets her fate, a river running free
And joins its tumbling rush to greet the sea.

    wow, I am so happy to have met you. You seem to be a master with the traditional forms and I miss not seeing more of that! My friend jan does really well with Ottava rimas too. I have not done many of them. I end up doing more the sonnets and rondeaus. I bet you have done rondeaus too? Luv, andrea

    I think this is a very old world sounding poem. Something I think should have already been in a book somewhere. Congratulations on placing with this piece!
