'The Windmiller's Guest'

'The Windmiller's Guest'

I faced him, with my back to love
Above the village street. 
And, told him, 'No', that I thought of
Adventures less concrete. 

This land ship held no hope for me
Of life beyond this place
And, with my answer I could see
The look upon his face. 

His pipe he held unsatisfied,
Still, love his only view,
Like roses past their bloom had died
And lost their fragrant hue.

    wow, you did yours so much more succinctly than I did mine and yet you said so much more in your brevity than I did in mine. WEll, I took the theme in a completely different direction. I enjoy the uniqueness of yours.
