Idyll Thoughts

Through the forest glade I glide Upon a golden horse I feel the sunlight on my face And smiling, stay the course. Without a care through thickets filled With trees and gorgeous ferns I breathe the greeny forest in As hopeful my heart yearns To emerge unscathed from forest dark And on the other side Break forth to find my find my lover there As though he had not died My wandering thoughts of bygone days Of simple life and love Of streams and picnics, fields and life Of starry nights above My love and I would canter through The fields ripe with wheat To our special, hidden place Where we would love so sweet. Alas, I ride alone and feel As I never have before My love, you see, went off to fight And died while in the war If I find a magic lamp And wishes three have I I’ll wish for love again restored For his touch and starry skies. That would be my perfect world But for now my golden horse And I will ride and search in vain Forever stay the course. One day I will join him there In starry skies above And we will be forever bound Together in our love. 9/14/21
