Once I Stood Upon A High Mountain Top

Once I Stood Upon A High Mountain Top I stood upon a mountain top, weeping boulders tumbling amiss this sight held me, I could not stop for loving sky I thought to kiss. I stood in an emerald glen, its forest sights and sounds abound sweet wonder, true blessing to men as a lover's beating heart pounds. I stood in a stream its waters deep, earth and sky calling out my name truly fine gifts sent when I sleep breath, cripples no longer lame. I stood on high, heard a voice say, seek not life's sad imitations as life rises forth break of day God's Love, sits in all creations. Robert J. Lindley, 7-23-2019 Rhyme, ( A glimpse of truth in a dream once I saw )

Thank you my friend. Youth, its wonders and its many stored, image filled treasures are truly great fodder for composing my poetry. God bless....
