A Wayward Heart

The summer rain fell softly upon me as I traveled along
I felt alive and energized and I began to sing an old song
The weeping willows stand as statues of a forgotten past
The flower garden, with its' angel fountain, glows as I pass

The rain gave way to a bright sunny day indeed
I rushed away each of these precious moments, there was no need
I found a turtle by the walk, I let him go on by
I see everything so clearly it makes my heart cry

Beckoning my soul is the song of the bluebird far away
His gentle song tugs at my heart along my way
I chisel a little more of my sad past as I go
Oh Lord, help this country boy clear his soul

    so serene, I really enjoyed this though it is not free verse, your rhyme pattern is [along/song, past/pass aa,bb] [indeed/need, by/cry cc, dd] [away/way, go/soul ..it's the O sound that rhymes on the last 2 it's half rhyme which is fine] 2 more lines and you'd have a sonnet right now it's couplet or quatrain form ;) Light & Love
