Beyond The Horizon, Dwelling In Sunset's Red

Beyond The Horizon, Dwelling In Sunset's Red Beyond the horizon, dwelling in sunset's red all is right - no compromising, silk sheets, soft bed Cool streams leading to good, world exists with no stains love wins just as it should, nights holding no dark pains. Beyond the horizon, hell's wrath can not invade new morn's rising, magnificent life hope has made Days spent in wonder, sworn to promises of more ships sailing on seas of splendor, from shore to shore. Paradise there seeing, Nature's hidden palace glory in being, free of man's dark and malice Earth's sweet pleasures, love over-filled beyond measure time spent in leisure, where true love is the treasure. Red skyline's glow, grooms castles of eternity. Wrapped in love's, sincerest hope and serenity. R.J. Lindley July 9th, 1971 Sonnet Note- Written long ago-centuries it now seems..

Ha ha! You wrote this the year I graduated from High School in the Silicon Valley! I thought this was beautiful and hopeful and I needed that on this day. Imagery put us there, to see what you see. It put us in your head. Lovely.

Wow! You were quite the romantic poet as a young man! (Not that you're old now, by any means, of course). An enchanting sonnet, full of delightful imagery. Kudos, Gershon

Thank you my friend. I was perhaps smitten by some ravishingly beautiful girl that was a graduating senior that year. I simply can not remember. I wish I had written a note about the poem.. Certainly a lot about those years that I have forgotten... God bless..

Thank you my friend. I was 17 when I wrote that. I simply can not remember what stirred me to compose it. As it one of the poems that I did not include a usual note in... God bless..
