I Walked A Mile

Autumn Wallpaper

I really like this simple but powerfully stated poem by Robert Browning Hamilton called “I Walked A Mile.”  It is only two stanzas but has a lot to say: 

“I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow;
And ne’er a word said she
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When Sorrow walked with me.”

I completely agree with what he said in this poem for I have received many more blessings from Sorrow than ever I did from Pleasure!  Please share your thoughts with me on this poem!

When Sober Spirits Fly

MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – A Touch Of Frost

Inspiration for the prompt:  A Late Walk by Robert Frost

A Winter Walk....

A touch of frost

does my heart imbue

when sober spirits fly

beyond to what is unseen

 

Flailing every thought in my mind

causing each moment to be

like a hard days work

attempting to capture a breath…

 

Then, in a morn’s new mercy

the sober spirits return with

the heat of sun upon their wings

and melts my heart’s frost into

 

A love that ignites my hearth

and once again this soul is

insulated, protected from the

world’s brutal Winter.
