The Climb to Wonderment
by Agnes Clarke
The mountain called with a lonely cry
Heard only by the wind and sky
While within the soul incessantly
His longing heart beat restlessly
Like the eagle flies with careless grace
Over heights that man desires
Those peaks that reach and point on high
To diamonds bright in a velvet sky
Legs brushed gently by foliage the stony path he found
In solitude the silence broken only by footsteps sound
With flashlight as a tracer pervading the climb ahead
As an alien in space searching for a universe to tread
At last on summit high that majesty he found
Standing on the precipice of wonder all around
Heavens night time shroud above in glittering space
Reaching throughout the universe in royal colour traced
In inky blue to purple the midnight sky holds tenderly
Each star in twinkling beauty as a child on its mother’s knee
While like fireworks with purpose the comets abound
Encircling brightly on their way to the ground
I have been writing poetry for quite a few years
I enjoy the challenge of creating my verse especially from pictures
I live in Lisburn N Ireland and have been married to John for 53 years
I am a retired housewife and grandmother to Jacob and Jesse
