                                           COME HOME TO ME

                                Beyond that mountain
                                Echo strides
                                Foodsteps faultless led by stars
                                Eager to assume our life
                                Master players in the game-- love wars--

                                Weaving, jumping by your lanky side
                                Snapping, urging on to play the rush
                                Is your dauntless canine friend
                                Eager for his own heart’s crush
                                That curls her lazy tail ‘round cradle’s bend

                                'Ere dawn near blaze
                                Dreams’s Drowsy time--
                                Reluctantly I free your hand
                                Slowly wake-- to mewling nudge-- our newborn babe
                                whose nuzzle blushes memories to my breast

                                Gathering wood--
                                Building fires—
                                Round the hearth
                                Some Women wait--
                                Some Women roam--
                                While weaving safety nets for
                                Children in a nest of home.

                                 Hands upon a thousand tasks
                                 While Heart upon a certain man---
                                 Hand upon whatever chore
                                 Knowing that the man beloved
                                 Is whistling closer
                                 Step by step

                                 Beyond that Mountain 
                                 Dog a leaping, joy abounds--
                                 Manly strides --familiar tunes--
                                 As the North Star
                                 Counts the joy of homeward steps.

    It's a beautiful time sketch, where you have tried to capture the moments which often attracts us to create Poetry as sublime as this one. Great write Victoria from a place which is surrounded with extreme colds and snowy extremes. It was a joy to read your poem which I will read more soon and thank you for your precious words on my Rape Victim Poem. I am sure that you must have seen and heard the Song also. If possible please your comments on You Tube also. Love and best wishes ...Ravindra
