A Wanderer’s Song - Poem by David Wood

No more shall we go wandering
By the light of the silvery moon
Or drinking the night time hours away
Because the evening goes too soon.

Less shall we woo young maidens
To steal a kiss or two
With fickle love in night-time bars
As others seem to do.

The night was made for wooing
Young damsels in early May
Under a clear full moon’s whisper
As young hearts go astray.

But beware as autumn comes around
There is a call from among the wild
As some young maidens go to ground
As they find themselves with child.

    Accurate depiction of loving and leaving, but never staying to claim your immature mistakes and right them. Leaving children without fathers to help raise them. Good portrayal of lessening morals in society. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Somehow there is not the maiden's blame
    It takes two to play the baby game
    Where is the responsible one?
    The boy's of kiss and flee
    Castrate one and the others will think differently. (Report) Reply

    For reckless 'love', there can be grave consequences! So one should be on one's guard not to be lured by wild and unlawful passions of the flesh! A gentle but stiff warning! Enjoyed this poem, a little different from your usual write! ! (Report) Reply

    A wanderer's song so beautifully sung!
    An appropriate word of caution for the 'young maidens' who 'go to the ground'. (Report) Reply
